تجمع روزه داران در همبستگی با زندانیان اعتصاب کننده در مقابل اوین/Group of social and political activists join families of hunger strikers in front of Evin Prison

پارسى

Gathering in front of Evin Prison in support of the prisoners on hunger strike: On Saturday, a group of social and political activist gathered in front of Evin Prison at sunset to celebrate Iftar and ended their political fast along side of the families of the political prisoners.

The attendees while reaffirming to the families of the political prisoners that they have not been forgotten, prayed for the health of the political prisoners on strike and their immediate release.  17 political prisoners have been on a hunger strike since July 26 to protest deteriorating conditions inside Evin Prison and have been prohibited from contacting their families.  The 17 are among hundreds held in Ward 350 of Tehran’s Evin Prison, many of whom were unlawfully detained as part of the mass arrests of political dissidents and peaceful demonstrators following the disputed June 12, 2009 presidential election. 

There is speculation that more prisoners may have joined the hunger strike in recent days.
