An appeal in the defence of political prisoners in Iran

Sixteen political prisoners of Karaj Gohardash prison, via a declaration, have objected to the organised conspiracy of security apparatus of the Islamic regime against Behnam Ibrahimzadeh.

In Iran, our country, injustice and unleashed repression are integral parts of the Islamic regime. Its judicial system is an instrument for murder, imprisonment and torture of freedom fighters for a better future for the Iranian people.

Behnam Ibrahimzadeh, an advocate of children and workers’ rights has been in the notorious regimes’ jail for over four years now and due to his protest to horrendous conditions of the prison, he has been sentenced to extra nine and half years in an unfair retrial.

We, the political, social, cultural and media activists and advocates of workers and political prisoners’ rights, support the Karaj political prisoners’ declaration and condemn the organised conspiracy against the jailed labour activists and political prisoners.

We are asking all of the freedom fighters to support us in any possible way to hinder the Islamic regimes’ judicial system from further imprisonment of Behnam Ibrahimzadeh and other political and labour activists.
