Dear Iran on General Assembly Week

apri
 
With the General Assembly in New York this week, many eyes are turned back to Iran’s recent presidential election. Claims of voter fraud are not uncommon here and abroad, so Americans can certainly sympathize with the frustration of millions of Iranian voters who believed voting would bring about change. 
 
To show their support for dissent and the green revolution (the color of dissent) in Iran, more than 100 international graphic designers created posters, including Woody Pirtle (above), Massimo Vignelli, Yossi Lemel, Wang Xu (below, first), Wim Crouwel (second), Edo Smitshuijzen (third), Lex Drewinski (bottom), Gianni Sinni, and Holger Matthies, among others. Social Design Zine in Italy is host to all the images of which I’ve reproduced only a few. To view all the posters, visit their site here.

    Concerning voter fraud in Iran, I feel the same way about the November Election in the USA! In Ohio, a judge ruled that 200,000 suspicious votes submitted through ACORN, (an organization now exposed by youtube sting videos), would not be investigated. Then on Election Night, John McCain concedes to Obama after Ohio is declared won by Obama by 200,000 votes. Do you want to win an election by voter fraud? Is that honest democracy?
