Thanks to 82 people, we have managed to raise £2,465 towards our second Bread and Roses fundraising campaign for much-needed equipment.
With only 6 days left and more than £12,500 more to raise, though, we were hoping you or someone you know might be willing and able to help us reach our target.
Bread and Roses is an important taboo-breaking, freethinking political-social TV magazine in Persian and English broadcast in Iran and the Middle East via New Channel satellite TV and globally via social media. Millions have already seen the programme. It has been extremely well-received and can play an important role in opposing Islamism and promoting universal rights, free-thought and secularism.
To continue long-term, though, we will need additional equipment. We cannot keep producing our programmes with the current computer and without a video mixer or proper lighting.
Please help us if you can.
16 June is the last day you can help.
For your information, we have produced the following programmes so far:
* Apostasy and right to belief highlighting case of Sudanese apostasy case Mariam Yahya Ibrahim (with an interview with Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain co-Spokersperson Nahla Mahmoud), English, Farsi
The programme is hosted by Maryam Namazie, an award-winning secularist and atheist blogger and campaigner; Fariborz Pooya, founder of the Iranian Secular Society and Bahram Soroush, a civil rights activist. Its director is Reza Moradi; programme consultant is Poone Ravi.
Please support our fundraising campaign if you can. You can donate here. Every penny will help.
Thank you for any support.
