Although , We the journalists have co-habited with the work in the " jornalistic mine field " of Iran but never did accept to adjust ourselves to the inhuman unlawful acts.

Despites of " filtering/ blocking " Tabriz News website , its been years that whenever Iranian news were hot topic , my home and cell phone conversation with international Radios like Radio France , Farda , B.B.C. , Azadegan and .... for many time while talking have been cut off and sometimes were impossible for reporters to contact me.

If these threat , botherings and persecution , will continue , I will legaly bring my complaint from the officials and those people behind these actions to the attention of international human rights organizations.

Tuesday June 7 / 2005

Letter from Naser Zarafshan from Evin prison: From Tuesday June 7/2005 I will start for indefinite hunger strike.

Oppressed people of Iran:

It's been 6 months that as a result of severe kidney illness, while tolerating the illness and its consequences, am busy dealing with different officials for pushing them to execute the legal regulation in regard to treatment of my illness, but not only my follow up from within prison ended with result but also my lawyers from outside the prison too? And the officials always waste the time.
Now that there result of examinations, tests and different X-rays which was all taken by the clinic inside prison and the specialists and their trusted doctors, and from prison it was sent to officials in judiciary, everything is clearly specified and the related officials are completely aware of it........and this is in a condition that the murderer armed bandits on a pretext take leave of absence from Evin prison and during the leave of absence they again commit the murder.

Now that all my notification and continues protests during this time, added to those is my personal approach to Tehran prosecutor during the short leave of absence that I received on last new year, none of them ended to result, and since for receiving the most natural and basic of my rights has been denied then I do not have any other tool except my own life , therefore from Tuesday June 7/2005 I will go on indefinite hunger strike and "will continue this marathon of death “ to the end , so that if the behavior they pursue with the independent political prisoners is a kind of gradual death and no one will be responsible for it ,by doing so I will make their intrigue ineffective and will bring the responsible into the eye of society and people.

In the meantime based on the past experience the first reaction of the officials is direct denial of these kinds of protest actions and the next step is to distort, poison public opinion and to spread rumors against people on hunger strike by the elements and societies linked to power ,in order to prevent these type of poisoning, information about my situation will be brought to the people of Iran exclusively through my family and a committee composed of my lawyers , madam Shirin Ebadi , Dr. Mohammad Sharif, Dr. Fariborz Raisdana, Ali-Ashraf Darvishian and Seifolah Akbari .

Is Ganji in Evin prison?! Where is he? Is he under torture because he has said the leader must be elected as president?

Wednesday June 8/ 2005

In a report in "Roozonline" in Farsi by "Farnaz Ghazizadeh" I red :

" The situation of Ganji a matter of uncertainity"

She reported:
"The agents of Tehran prosecutors with a subpoena which had the signature of Tehran prosecutor Said Mortazavi at around 10:30 pm last night went to Akbar Ganji's homein order to arrest him, while yesterday morning Jamal Karimirad spokeperson for ministry of justice among a group of reporters spoke about the extension on Ganji's leave of absence".

According to the report by the "Rooz" reporter: These individuals which numbered to more than 10 , while there were guests in Ganji's home , returned to his home , but since Ganji wasn't present at home , they were disappointed of the arrest and about an hour waiting , They left the house".

Apparently , there are two decission making faction in ministry of justice , One spoke among reporters on extension of Ganji's leave of absence from prison and the other faction with the authority of Tehran public prosecutor wanted to get him back to prison.

" Ganji's wife said: Based on negotiation we had with ministry of justice , we agreed to bring a letter from Ganji's doctor which was done on Monday and we had a letter from Dr. Masjedi a lung specialist who indicated the necessity for Ganji's treatment and we gave this letter to our connection in ministry of justice and he gave this letter to the official in charge".

Based on Ganji's wife: "during the negociation for the release of Ganji , Said Mortazavi was not the negociating party and this action was taken by other officials".

She said when the agents arrived , Ganji was out with his friends,. She said many people were willing to gather in our house to prevent them to bring Ganji to prison , but we diden't agree,We dont want trouble the country needs calmness.
Based on latest news from Tehran, Akbar Ganji up to 1:30am mid night Tuesday did not return home, this situation caused for the family of Ganji a great deal to worry that may be he is been arrested, but the lawyer of Ganji rejected this rumors.

A national and International demand:Immedite freedom of all political and media prisoners!

Tuesday June 7/2005

A national and International demand:

Immedite freedom of all political and media prisoners!
By : Farhad Motamed

Akbar Ganji must have returned to prison at mid-night last night, A" must" based on persistance of the Tehran's " prosecutors " deputy while immediate freedom of all political and media prisoners have becom the daily demand of Iranian people and human rights advocates around the world.

Ganji demanded for the release of all political prisoners and Emad Baghi said that there are 50 political prisoners.

Last week, reformists forces outside the government like: Habibullah Payman, Ebrahim Yazdi, Ahmad Sadre Haj-Seyed Javadi, Ahmad Zeid- Abadi, Ezat Sahabi, Mohammad Basteh Negar, Emadodin Baghi, Morteza Kazemianand Mehdi Aminizadeh in protest for not releasing the prisoners went on a " sit in " in front of ministry of justice and demanded from the minister of justice to release 3 " Melli - Mazhabi " prisoner : Hoda Saber, Taghi Rahmani and Reza Alijani and threatened that if they are not released in 2 weeks again they will gather in protest.

Hashem Aghajeri formerly a prisoner himself demanded for the immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners.

RSF official site reported about imprisoned journalists and weblog writers: "Siamak Pourzand, Abbas Abdi, Ensafali Hedayat, Mohammad Reza Nasab Elahi, Mojtaba Lotfi and Mojtaba Samiei Nezhad."

Report on hunger strike of political prisoners in "Rejaei Shahr- Karaj " prison added 13 name to this list and brought the number to 24 people: these prisoners have started their hunger strike from yesterday , The are : Amir Saran, Hojat Zamani, Arzhang Davoudi, Farzad Hamidi, Bia Darabzand, Mehrdad Lohrasbi, Khaled Hardani, Vali Feiz-Mahdavi,Jafar Eghdami, Seifollah Shahbazi, Afshin Baymani, Mohammad Ebrahimi and Heidari.
Omid Abbas-Gholinezhad another prisoner who also is but in " Fardis - Karaj " prison joined to this hunger strike and then after him the political prisoners in Evin prison went on hunger strike . They are : Hojat Bakhtiari, Mostafa Jokar, Heshmatollah Tabarzadi, Fatah Madani, Manouchehr Mohammadi and Shahram Hoseinjani.
Mohammad Ali Dadkhah who is the lawyer of students arrested on student uprising a few years ago,added more name to the list that had already 31 namesand brought it to 36 namein the list.They are : Ali Shojaie, Khosro Tarkashvand, Mojtaba Najafi and Heidar Zahedi.Association of Writers in Iran in their statement yesterday demanded for the freedom of " Yousef Azizi-Banitorf" .Association of Women Journalists in a statement demanded for the release of media writers.

These days ( presidential election days ) everyone talks of the release of political- media - weblog ... prisoners , The judiciary power also accepted this national demand but still the prison doors are closed .

To this perhaps you can add daily arrest and release of many people , the religious minorities like Bahai's and others ...........which is not reported by media.......

IRAN WATCH CANADA will try its outmost effort to translate these news and report it to world human rights offices as well as NGO's.

Hear the pain of a mother and father ! -

Letter from the mother and father of Akbar and Manuchehr Mohammadi to president about an attempt to the life of Akbar Mohammadi !......

As you are aware , our son Akbar Mohammadi together with his brother Manuchehr Mohammadi have been arrested during the student protest on 1998 and was brought to Tohid prison by the ministry of information and was tortured.The torture was so horrible that back and kidney of Akbar is severly damaged. Akbar at first was sentenced to death but later it was changed to 15 years imprisonment. Now after 6 years imprisonment and since he was becoming paralyzed , Evin prison let him for the leave of absence because diden't want to accept the expenses for his treatment.
Akbar Mohammadi , in this last 4 months had 4 operation on his back and it is needed that the other 2 operation will take place outside of Iran, but because of financial difficulties and not having leave of absence and him being banned to leave the country we are unable do anything .

Your Excelency,

On Tusday May 31 / 05 while our son Akbar was on his way from the city of Amol to go to Babol for the result of the medical test and after recieving it and on his return he was chased by 2 unknown cars , 2 unidentified men after a few minutes chasing him struck their car to the back and side of Akbar's car and as a result he was thrown outside of the road and his car pressed , your representative can go and chek this . Those men after the accident escaped but right after them 3 police officer arrived did not do anything and left the place as well. It seems that they came to make sure if Akbar is alive or dead.In this situation the farmers who were working on their farms came and by breaking the door they took Akbar out of peices of Irons and brought to hospital.........At the end agents came to our house and asked about Akbar and threatened him to keep quiet otherwise you will expect a severe consequence, why dont you want to learn a lesson?.
........ We demand you find this perpetrators and bring them to justice in case you will not help us we will ask international human rights organizatiopns to help us.

Mohammad Mohammadi, Gol-Jahan Ashraf pour
