Campaign to Free Political Prisoners in Iran (CFPPI) is calling 20th of June, the International Day in Support of Political Prisoners in Iran

Ever since the formation of the Islamic Regime in Iran in 1979, thousands of people have been imprisoned and tortured; they are punished for exercising their freedom of expression. Men and women who speak against the regime are put in prisons and even executed. No one is spared: mothers give birth in prison, parents watch their children being tortured, young children are kept in prison cells with their parents, and political prisoners are brutally tortured every day in Iran. Many of the political prisoners aren't allowed to have visitors and they are kept in solitary confinements for months and even years. Hundreds of political prisoners lost their lives under tortured, but the world never got to hear their stories. This has been happening in Iran for 30 years; it is happening right now. CFPPI will commemorate the 20th of June every year until the last political prisoner in Iran is freed. This day will provide the opportunity to bring our forces together, and to strongly echo the voice of these prisoners throughout the world. We call on all organisations and individuals to join us.

On 20th June 2010 Show your support and help to raise awareness about the political prisoners in Iran. Join us on this day:

· To release all political prisoners unconditionally and immediately!

· To stop execution immediately!

On this day you can:

- Hold demonstration(s) in front of Iranian embassy in your country

-Send a protest letter to the Islamic regime of Iran
