Color Coded MAP of Embassies in Iran Helping Injured

with 10 comments

This is a link  to a map that provides the location of every embassy in Tehran:http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=116894734857323306892.00046ccb858387ddf2a3d

This is a link to a text file of the embassies and whether or not they take injured: http://bit.ly/2rYIbt

The map and text file are  color coded. Below is the description:

Best info we have – please update if you know more. GREEN: OPEN (embassy statement open)

YELLOW: no statement, indication yes RED: NO HELP (embassy can’t help injured)


Assume Basij are blocking all embassies and use CAUTION. Also many Embassies deny that they are helping injured or even are able to do so. Hard to get straight facts. Furthermore most embassies won’t have sophisticated medical equipment on site. In case of life threathening injury please go to the nearest hospital. In addition latest info suggests embassy staffs are being expelled from country soon. check too with https://eldercato.wordpress.com/2009/06/20/list-and-status-of-injured-accepting-embassies-in-tehran/ Please help in further enhancing this map by checking the information and by providing additional information (other Embassies, capacity of Embassies …)

Again the link is:http://bit.ly/AXKb0

Please pass this on. Spread it on your blog or website. Claim it as your own, we really don’t care. It just needs to be out there. Tweet this until you can’t Tweet anymore. JUST GET IT OUT THERE!

  1. Hi eldercato:

    Looks like this is updated as of today (6.24), but after posting to Twitter, two people replied immediately and said that ALL embassies are blocked by basij and NO embassy in Iran is accepting the injured.

    Pls advise. Thx. @nihonmama

    • Well they are wrong, and even if they are blocked the people still need to know where they are. What if they can organize thousands of people to descend on the embassies and create a way to get injured through. Then what? And the Basij may move away. I have reports that suggest that there will be PLENTY of ability and desire to help in the VERY near future.

      • I contacted the Canadian Embassy and in response to my request for continued aid to Tehran’s injured crowd the replied that they do aid them and they will continue doing so.

  2. The following was a response to my request of help from Canadian Embassy. They will continue helping injured if they go to them. read the following

    Reports on Saturday that the Canadian Embassy in Iran was turning away people seeking sanctuary are false. The Embassy was closed Saturday and there were no Canadians at the Embassy when the protests began.

    We have been advised by other Embassies in Tehran that they did not provide shelter to injured Iranians, as has been alleged.

    Embassy staff has made every attempt to ensure services, particularly consular, remain unaffected by the situation. Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, including the Canadian Embassy in Tehran, continues to provide consular assistance to Canadian citizens in-person, on the phone and through email.

    In case of emergency consular assistance regarding Canadian citizens in Iran, please contact the Embassy of Canada in Tehran at +98 (21) 8152-0000 or the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada’s Emergency Operations Centre by calling collect to 613-996-8885 or by sending an email to sos@international.gc.ca.
