Get Real News Into Iran from Irancontacts
In a country like Iran, the government rules the media. The Media can only report what they are allowed to report, once the news passes the official censors. If you like the concept of InformIran, please facebook us, Reweet the link, everything you can do to publicize this progam!
Though we have re-formatted this page, if you are looking for some of the older posted lists, they are still here, they have been given pages. That last load of about 7000 emails about overloaded us!
The InformIran plan will work, and in worldwide large numbers, it will beat the censors and inform our friends in Iran. Tell your friends about his program, and re-tweet it. We are constantly adding new email addresses and fax numbers to the lists. Sorry, they are a bit sloppy, but this is about quantity, not looks.
Let’s say you send 100 emails with 2 articles attached, and 50 get through.That means that there are at least 100 news stories in circulation because of you. Now, what if each story went through 10 hands? Now it is a thousand. And of each of them passed it through 10 more hands? 10, 000 people know more about what is going on in their country because of YOU! What if they tell 10 friends, yes, that is 100,000 people, and now you have started your own sea of green!
Our friends in Iran are being arrested probably really tortured, and killed. We can send a few faxes and emails into Iran for them. News and information is essential in a part of the world where everything is censored, and this is a way around the censors!

Posting got way out of hand! There are now multiple pages on this site, with the email only listings. Please use them as replacements for the massive long list that will remain until 06.23.09
Those that can communicate out if Iran are limited to talking with a close circle of friends that they can trust. Mass blanketing of emails and faxes will get real information into the hands of everyday Iranians, and let them know just what the world knows about things in Iran. This may empower more Iranians to take to the streets, and join the movement.
If the news gets into the hands of a hardliner, the fact that they did not contain all of the atrocities in the streets may convince them to switch sides, and go green, or at least be a bit easier on our friends in Iran, knowing that the world is indeed watching.
We need to get printable information from the outside world circulating in Iran! They can forward the emails, or print them and circulate them by hand, or toss them into the crowds! The plan is to send enough material into Iran that even if a secretary picks up a fax, she can read a bit of information before she passes it on, or tosses the fax. Pick some numbers or addresses, and get yourself some Iranian Pen Pals!
Most of these email addresses are businesses, and they have the opportunity to forward the email to others or keep it, either way they will have REAL INFORMATION from the outside world!
There is a time for unsolicited emails, and this is it! Iran has blocked most of the reliable news sources from the outside world, so all the typical Iranian knows is what the government tells them.. and those are government lies!
Iran barely has an internet, No YouTube, no CNN, BBC, FoxNews, NBC.. They only have Twitter because of extraordinary efforts to keep it open. You name it, if it is a block able site, they block it to control what the people know. The world has thousands of videos, tens of thousands of articles, and millions of Twitterers. Iran has no news that is not approved, and any news of an uprising is not approved!
This is a great way to irritate the Iranian Government, they cannot stop all of this information at the border! ReTweet this site, Facebook it, Digg it, Delicious it, whatever you can do to get your others involved. This is a lot to do for a few people, but a little for each to do when there are hundreds involved. Phone, fax and email work, though! They cannot shut down the entire internet without closing businesses across the country.
The email plan is to get enough emails into the queue that when they have email service, emails will get through to those that can share the information inside the country of Iran
If you are fluent in Farsi, obtain anything you can from University sites, or other public sites, and post them into the comments section!
This is all about getting so much information into Iran that the censors cannot catch it all!
There are all sorts of online fax services that offer free trials, and sure would be worth a try for a few sends to Iran!
We need to get news INTO Iran, so they know just what all we know, and how big the news really is, worldwide!
Here is a starter list, of Phone, Fax, and Email contact info that I found. It does not really matter HOW the information gets in, just that it does.
These lists get posted as we get them, there are several lists to be used:

pdf’s are better, since they can’t be searched for words.
this is really easy. download http://www.primopdf.com/
it’s free. install it. quit your browser and open it up again. If you now print, you can select primopdf. press ok to print. now select ’screen’ and browse to a folder and give a filename (keep these a bit ambiguous). you have a pdf. selecting screen will give more compression on images, resulting in smaller file size. try to keep your attachment total under 2 mb (some servers do not accept large mails)
If you have more questions, just ask! Thank you for your help!
Yes, you’re right. I actually learned from all the spam I got in the years. I make ’semireadable’ subjects, by replacing E with 3 and O with the number 0 and change it a bit in each small chunk by adding signs like _ and -. So:
-_N3ws fr0m the w0rld_-
or something similar
that’s the technique the v1@gra guys use. Finally some usage!
thanks for the translation!
