Free Shahrokh Zamani and Reza Shahabi

This petition had 916 supporters

Shahrokh Zamani has been imprisoned in Iran since January 2012 on charges of “acting against national security by establishing or membership of groups opposed to the system” and “spreading propaganda against the system”, because he is a member and activist with the Paint Workers’ Union of Tehran. In prison he has been tortured, denied medication and denied visitors. Shahrokh was on hunger strike earlier this year in protest at prison conditions, which has left him with persistent health probelms.


Reza Shahabi has been in prison since June 2010 on charges of “propaganda against the state” and “acting against national security”, because he is the Treasurer and Executive Board member of the Tehran Bus Workers’ Union. In prison he has been tortured, been denied medical treatment and has developed serious health problems as a result of being tortured. Reza has been on hunger strike twice in protest at his prison conditions, which has also affected his health.


We call for the release of Shahrokh and Reza, and for all charges against them to be dropped.
