Peaceful Protest Against Company (Sephora) Expanading Into Iran

Pardon the disjointed text, but I had to cut and paste it from an email. I have been asked to pass this along regarding a peaceful demonstration tomorrow in Los Angeles against a cosmetics company (Sephora) that is expanding into Iran.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Are you available on Sunday morning - to make a difference and help stop Iran from spreading terrorism and killing innocents?
 
ORLANDO ISN’T THE ONLY PLACE
WHERE ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS
EXECUTE GAYS.
SO WHY IS SEPHORA OPENING IN IRAN?
In Iran, gays are murdered in the public square — by a brutal government that’s guilty of committing terrible human rights abuses against LGBT people on a daily basis.
 
Citizens for Worldwide LGBT Justice
 
Let us not be silent. Let us not reward evil. Let us respect the lives of LGBT people all around the world.
     BOYCOTT SEPHORA     
                UNTIL IT CANCELS ITS PLAN TO OPEN IN IRAN
 
 
THIS SUNDAY, July 17, at 11:00 a.m. there will be public demonstration to launch a boycott of the cosmetics chain Sephora, because they have announced plans to expand in Iran.
 
This boycott is to protest the persecution of gays in Iran.
 
The peaceful demonstration will be at the Sephora store in Beverly Hills at 270 North Beverly Drive - opposite
the Il Fornaio restaurant.
 
We checked with the Beverly Hills Police Department, and they have no problems with this as long as we do not impede traffic or entry into the store. If we are successful in turning away customers, I think we will attract increasingly larger demonstrations and media coverage
The goal is to shame Sephora into terminating it's expansion plans in Iran, which might affect other companies hoping to do business with Iran. Sephora is a subsidiary of the French conglomerate LVMH, which also owns Louis Vuitton.
