The Only Way Forward

Families of political prisoners protesting anyplace they can

On Monday, August 2, 2010, families of political prisoners in ward 350 of Evin prison gathered in protest inside and outside the visiting hall demanding news about the conditions of their loved ones.  The phones in the ward are still cut, and the families are extremely worried.

Prison officials are also separating political prisoners from other prisoners so that they can’t send out  news of the political prisoners during their family visits.

Families of the political prisoners also protested  in front of the Prosecutor’s Office and the notorious Revolutionary Court.  Regime forces eventually dispersed the protesting families.

The families then went to the Bazaar.

They stood at the entrance of the Bazaar, and in a loud voices shouted that: “you went on strike for taxes for a week, and now we invite you to strike for our beloveds.”

Shopkeepers came out of their shops and supported the families.  Mothers started chanting Allah O Akbar.  The shopkeepers and people around the scene consoled the families and eventually calmed the mothers down.

There is also news of 40 other political prisoners in wards 209 and 240 that joined the hunger strikers of ward 350.
