Rebtel Donates 250K Minutes For Iranians To Check On Loved Ones

Well, very cool

STOCKHOLM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rebtel, the people’s global communications company, today announced it is offering Iranians around the world a quarter of a million minutes of free calling home in support of the non-violent protesters that have taken to the streets over the disputed presidential elections 10 days ago.

“No strings attached – just call home on Rebtel and make sure your family and friends in Iran are okay,” said Hjalmar Winbladh, Rebtel’s chief executive officer.

I guess not all companies are evil, eh?

Meanwhile, food for thought

An Iranian student protester in Tehran made a passionate plea for help from the world community this morning in a phone call to CNN’s “American Morning.”

Perhaps the talking point about America getting involved will change the tenor of the protests into anti-Americanism could be wrong. Just think of all the signs that were written in English.

President Barack Obama’s administration said earlier this month it would invite Iran to US embassy barbecues for the national holiday for the first time since the two nations severed relations following the 1979 Islamic revolution.

“There’s no thought to rescinding the invitations to Iranian diplomats,” State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters.
