How Would You Feel?

How would you feel if the government shut down your business because you observed a religious holy day?

In this video made by united4iran.org, they put this idea to the test by shutting down shops in the United States to demonstrate just what it’s like for Baha’i shopkeepers in Iran.

United for Iran is a team of issue experts, creative organizers, and Iranian activists that advocates for an end to human rights violations and supports the movement for democracy in Iran. The global United for Iran community acts on behalf of individuals, their families, and the community of people working for a free Iran through organizing, online advocacy and public education. Since 2009, more than 250,000 people from 110 cities have participated in U4I-sponsored activities.
