MOTHERS OF LALEH PARK (MOURNING MOTHERS OF IRAN*) DEMAND AN IMIDIATE INVESTIGATION OF THE TERIBBLE CONDITIONS INSIDE THE PRISONS IN IRAN
No freedom loving human being can stay silent when hearing the horrible news that leak from Iran’s prisons time to time. These news tell the story of a massive human catastrophe that is happening every day in small and large, well known and unknown prisons of the country.
According to prisoners, mock execution, rape, pulling of nails, pushing prisoners heads into toilet bawl, getting attacked by vicious dogs, witnessing the torture of their close relatives, being forced to take mind altering drugs until they are reduced to a plant life state, long interrogations while being naked. sexual humiliation, wiping, sleep depravation, being locked in small cage, long solitary confinement, being threatened and lied to have been common tortures in the prisons of The Islamic republic all along. But torturing the prisoners in order to get false confessions is only part of the crimes and what goes on to political and non-political prisoners, old and young, men and women on a daily basis, is horrible and inhumane.
MFI Poster Series to Commemorate 20 June 2011: International Day of Support for Political Prisoners in Iran
Mission Free Iran is supporting the call of the Campaign to Free Political Prisoners in Iran to mark June 20 as the International Day in Support of Political Prisoners in Iran by creating a poster series to specifically for this action. Each poster features a different political prisoner, and we will be adding to the series up until the 20 June event. Additionally, because one of the demands of the 20 June action is to end executions in Iran, we also include posters to honor those whose lives have been stolen by the Islamic Republic’s executioners.
