20 June

Presently in Iran, the slightest criticism of the government and its leaders is met with arrest, unbearable torture and execution under the Islamic Regime. These prisoners are arrested for standing up for their rights and the rights of others. They are tortured for simply saying “NO” to the dictatorship of the regime. They are women’s rights advocates, union seeking trade workers, lawyers defending prisoners, human rights activists, writers, artists, and young students. Iran’s prisons are overcrowded with prisoners who are being tortured as these lines . are being written. We would like to ask everyone, everywhere in the world to hear their screams and to help free them from tyranny.
Since Iran executes one political prisoner every three hours, it is most important that protests be held across the globe to strongly condemn these executions and to speak out against this lawless and criminal regime.
The Iranian officials do not allow political prisoners to have any contact with the outside world. In fact, many are executed for simply speaking from inside the prison to human rights groups. This is because the authorities work very hard to hide these prisoners from the eyes of the international community. Therefore, June 20th, is of particular importance, as we must rise and demand the immediate freedom of all these political prisoners. Together as one voice, we must demand that the Islamic regime be put on trial for crimes against humanity. We must scream until we are heard. Their voice must be heard by the entire world.
Support June 20th; The International Day in Support of Political Prisoners in Iran.
Be their voice.
