Why this petition matters
A young artist who wrote a song about the issues in his country was jailed by the Iranian government. Shervin Hajipour was arrested after he posted a song about anti-government protests on Instagram.
The killing of Mahsa Amini by the Iranian government sparked nationwide protests that focused on Iran's long history of social injustice, political challenges, discrimination against religious minorities and women, and severe violations of basic human rights as well as freedom of expression.
Quick action is essential as the Iranian government tortures and murders its opponents in prison.
