Color Coded List of Embassies in Iran

with 204 comments

The following link is to a color coded MAP of ALL EMBASSIES in Iran based on whether or not they accept injured: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=116894734857323306892.00046ccb858387ddf2a3d

The color scheme used here will be the same as that used on the Map (linked above):

- Embassy of Switzerland (and US representation) – Elahieh Ave. Sharifimanesh Yasaman Street No. 2

- Embassy of the United Kingdom – K198, Ferdowsi Avenue (Being Closed Down)

I think that while no embassy will really refuse injured people that come to their doorstep they may not ‘officially’ accept them. I would like it noted that this list has influenced the course of history. Embassies and Foreign Ministries all around the world have started responding to it and countries like Italy and Austria seem to have possibly even changed their stance.

      • A bunch of Canadians have been calling every number in sight and making good use of government websites to get our government to open the embassy. So far we have confirmation that it will be open for business at 7:30 Sunday morning, but NO confirmation that it will be accepting wounded protesters. The only media to acknowledge it so far is a Toronto Star reporter. The petition is here: http://www.petitiononline.com/cndnemb/petition.html

  3. Hey mate, here’s a list of the embassy addresses taken from http://www.embassiesabroad.com/embassies-in/Iran#13964 and from embassy websites, and broken into easy formatting.

    I put the original list together, this one is much better formatted and likely more accurate. The original list was compiled purely from twitter.

    We tried calling the embassies for confirmation of their actions but the international circuits are completely jammed up.

    Ireland – North Kamranieh Avenue Bonbast Nahid Street, No. 8 19369 – (98 21)-22 80 38 35

    Australia – No. 13, 23rd Street Khalid Islambuli Ave Tehran 15138 – (98 21) 88 72 44 56

    Finland – Elahiyeh, Agha Bozorgi St Shirin Alley no.4 P.O.Box 19395-1733 – (98-21) 22 20 70 90; 22 23 09 79

    Finland (Alternate) No. 2, Haddadian St., Mirzapour St. (former Soheil St.), Dr. Shariati Ave. Tehran 19336

    Germany – Ferdowsi Ave., No 320-324, Teheran – (0098 21) 39 99 00 00

    Belgium – Elahieh – 155-157 Shahid Fayyazi Avenue (Fereshteh) 16778 Teheran – (98) (21) 22 04 16 17

    Canada – 57 Shahid Javad-e-Sarfaraz, Ostad-Motahari Avenue 15868 Tehran, Iran – (98 21) 81 52 00 00

    Netherlands – Darrous, Shahrzad Blvd Kamasaie Street, First East Lane No. 33 – 98 (0) 21 .22 56 70 05 / 22 56 70 07

    Norway – No. 201 Dr. Lavasani St. (Ex. Farmanieh St.) Corner of Sonbol St. Tehran, Iran – (0098 21) 22 29 13 33

    Italy – 81, Ave. Neuphle le Chateau – 98 21 672 6955

    Slovenian Republic – No 30, Narenjestan 8th Alleym, Pasdaran Avenue PO Box 19576 19575-459 – (98-21) 280- 2223

  11. If you don’t have good information that the address to the Embassy of Finland in Teharan supplied by the Finnish foreign ministry is false (or the address isn’t actually supposed to be that of the embassy), I suggest you remove the two other addresses and just leave the official one.

    I’m not familiar with street addressing in Teheran, maybe several addresses can lead to the same place, but according to their web page:

    “The new chancery of the Embassy of Finland has moved to new premises in Qeytariyeh in Haddadian 2, Mirzapour St. (prev. Soheil St.), Dr. Shariati Ave., Tehran. Renovation of the premises is still unfinished, which also interferes with the Chancery’s normal operations. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

My hope is that they will make it known. Now I will be checking to verify the level of assistance given at each Embassy. In the meantime it will have to do that they are even providing shelter and protection for the injured. I will get back to you. I will email you in a few minutes from my personal email and figure this out. Thank you.

None could hear me, though I tried in several languages. Since people in the US can hear me fine, I suspect interference with the phone system. Do you actually have spoken confirmation from the local embassies that they are taking wounded?

    Should anyone injured in the middle of this mayhem who is asking for help at any embassy be turned away, do let the world know via Twitter etc and you can be sure they will get a lot of people on their back to change their ways!

    **Why do you care so much about the nationality of the embassies who will take in injured? Has this last week not showed you that there are descent people from ALL nations who is on your side, who believe ALL people should have the right to choose, to real fair democratic elections.
    If someone is on your side, if a fellow human being wants to help you when you need it, what does it matter from where that persons passport is??

    • About the Canadian Embassy. The Canadian ambassador was expelled a couple years ago for butting heads with Iran. A Canadian Journalist was tortured and killed. Then we rejected the new Iranian ambassador to Canada for links to terrorism. Iran has still not allowed a Canadian Ambassador to take charge.

      The last revolution there was the “Canadian Caper” which allowed the Americans to evacuate a large number of their staff.

      All of this could be why Canada is not allowing injured in the embassy.

      Canadian Embassy is currently able to offer aid and assistance to Canadians in Iran but is unable to offer assistance to Iranian citizens at this time.

  57. The Liberal press office just now released a statement from Michael Ignatieff on the situation in Iran.

    “We mourn each life lost as a result of the Government of Iran’s unjust actions, and share the anguish and outrage of Canadians of Iranian origin at the suppression of peaceful protest and the apparent denial of fully free and fair elections. Canada should join other countries in keeping our embassy open for the humanitarian needs of the people of Iran.

    “The Iranian government cannot hide the truth from their own citizens or from the rest of the world. By answering the call for open and transparent elections with a violent disregard for the rights of its citizens, the Iranian government has further alienated itself from the international community. The Liberal Party of Canada strongly affirms the rights of Iranians and people everywhere to freely express themselves and associate with others, without threat to their life or liberty. We call on the Iranian government to cease the violence and continue to call for open and transparent elections.”

  59. Though these embassies may be ‘open’ do we know for a fact that these are not being blocked by the Basiji?

    An embassy’s willingness to accept injured protesters doesn’t mean that protesters have access if Basiji is blocking. It has been widely reported within the last few minutes that all embassies that had been accepting the injured are currently blocked by Basiji.

    I would recommend not re-posting on Twitter until that is a certainty, otherwise could be sending injured people in to the jaws of a jackal.

Got an official, confirmed directly from them, reply from the Finnish Embassy saying they can’t take the injured due to the fact that they don’t have the needed doctors and/or resources to help the wounded in the needed ways, and they see it critical that the wounded would get to the hospitals where they can get proper treatment. Which could mean that not all the rumors of the Basij waiting at the hospitals are true?

    Because of this reply, I began to doubt the authenticity of this list. Do all of these actually accept the wounded? I’ve only heard rumors of all of them accepting people, and confirmed that one doesn’t. Please DM @ Twitter if you have confirmed info!!!

  82. Tonight the dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs Maxim Verhagen announced that the Embassy of the Netherlands is open. “We have to realise that the dutch embassy isn’t a hospital, and the possibilities to help are limited. But again, if someone is in need of help then the door will be open.”

  85. The german embassy you find here

    If the situation escalates .. everyone have the right of ASYL in acspect of the german law (Grundgesetz der Bundesrepublik Deutschland Artikel 16 a Grundgesetz).

    Save your life! If you are on the premises of the embassy of Germany (or i.e. other countrys of the European Union), you’re in Germany! You are exterritorial (ex terra) of Iran!!!
