Thirty women political prisoners in Iran, including a Franco-Iranian academic and the daughter of a former president, demand an end to the executions of protesters in the country.
“We, the political and ideological prisoners in the women’s ward of Evin Prison, demand an end to the execution of protesters and an end to unjust sentences of prisoners in Iran,” they say in a petition.
The women inmates say they had been “sentenced to a total of 124 years in prison through unfair and non-transparent procedures, which is worth a few generations of human life.”
Despite coming from different religious and political backgrounds, “we have come together to say ‘no’ to execution. We defend people’s right to live in justice.”
