Save the Archeological Sites In Iran  
No new posts Save 7000 Years Heritage & Save the Archeological Sites of Pasargad
The Islamic Republic of Iran has embarked on the final stages of a dam construction in the south of Iran. This will ultimately flood and ruin the archaeological sites of Pasargad and Persepolis, the ancient capitals of the Achaemenian Empire. A rich and complex site, it has been considered by all writers of antiquity as one of the wonders of the ancient world and thus a part of the cultural heritage of the human race. Remembering the tragic destruction of the two Buddha statues in Afghanistan by the Taliban in 2001, this current unimaginable betrayal will not only eradicate the cultural origins of the Iranian people but threatens to wipe-out an irreplaceable part of human history. The magnificent archaeological remains at Pasargad and Persepolis are a testament to the industriousness and grandeur of the ancient Persians. However, their loss is not only confined to Iran and her people. These sites serve as an important historical record about our collective past and the beginnings of civilization with many stories and facts yet to be revealed through further study. Thus, it is not only Iranians that would be deprived of the most important part of their cultural identity but it is the world history itself that is in peril. Among the sites to be wiped off the face of the earth in the long run lies the tomb of Cyrus the Great, the Achaemenian king and father of the first “Declaration of Human Rights”. Two thousand five hundred years ago his unification of political systems brought freedom to all the nations that lived under his rule. In fact, he is considered as the first leader in history who advocated for the rights of people to freely choose and practice their own religious, cultural and philosophical ideologies. A replica of the cylinder of his declaration is now exhibited in the UN building to symbolize the long efforts of our people to depart from savagery and embrace a more civilized world. The tomb of this great man has been recognized and registered by UNESCO as a holly shrine to humanity.
