Raise Your Voice in Solidarity with The Political Prisoners in Iran.

Raise Your Voice in Solidarity with The Political Prisoners in Iran.25 June 2011The political prisoners in Iran are entering of a hunger strike in protest of the death of a fellow prisoner Hoda Saber, and Haleh Sahabi a Human Rights activist. Haleh Sahabi was murdered during her father’s funeral and Hoda Saber died after the first week of being on hunger strike by injuries that were inflicted on him by the prison guards. The main immediate demand of the prisoners on hunger strike is “safety for all political prisoners and prisoners of conscience”. We, the undersigned organizations and individuals strongly support their demand and hold the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) accountable for their health and well being. The political prisoners and prisoners of conscience in Iran are held in custody under severe conditions, and are persecuted in practicing their basic human rights. While demanding the protection of their lives and their dignity, we call for their immediate release. The Iranian regime with desperation to cover up its crimes, has disregarded United Nations (UN) requests and has not allowed the UN Special Rapporteur of the Human Rights Council to enter and investigate Human Rights violations in Iran. We appreciate and encourage further efforts of the Human Rights Council and ask all UN member governments to place pressure on the Iranian government in accepting the UN request. The lives of the political prisoners who are on hunger strike are in danger. We have already lost Hoda Saber and cannot afford to lose any others to the criminal acts of IRI. We also make appeal to all who value human lives and freedom, and ask they raise their voices and support the just demands of all Iranian political prisoners and the who are on hunger strike while demanding the Iranian government to allow the investigation of the UN Special Rapporteur.
We, the undersigned organizations and individuals strongly support all demand of the political prisoners and hold the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI) accountable for their health and well being.
