7 Dec 2009 – Arrested Majid Tavakoli

Majid Tavakoli

on 7 December 2009 –

Students’ Day –

16 Azar 1388-

the day of his latest arrest at Amirkabir University- detained since then

the regime, after they had arrested and obviously brutally beaten  him, put him in this ‘hijab’ to pretend he tried to escape in women’s cloths, as prove he was a ‘coward’ – this lie created a worldwide  campaign ‘we are all Majid‘ – men all over the world covered their hair with a headscarf, and took pictures in solidarity

Majid is imprisoned in Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, suffering from various health problems – after torture, hungerstrikes, lack of medical care …
simply for peacefully criticizing the government.

blogger, journalists, lawyers, women’s rights activists, human rights activists, students, environmental activists, believers of different faiths, civil rights activists
