Amnesty International issued a new worldwide appeal to help save Delara Darabi from execution. http://web.amnesty.org/appeals/index/irn-010307-wwa-eng
This is great news as Amnesty has much worldwide exposure and support. The article appeared in their websites in different languages as well as in their monthly newsletter. They also made a reference to Delara’s MySpace page under the new photo that we provided them.
Word of thanks to Nazanin Afshin-Jam, Vincent Maunoury of our team and Amnesty staff for making this possible.
March 4: Nazanin’s lawyer Shadi Sadr arrested
Fifty women’s rights activists were arrested in front of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran including one of Nazanin Fatehi’s lawyers Shadi Sadr.
The security police forces attacked a peaceful gathering of women’s rights activists that had taken place at 8:30 am in front of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran in objection to the recent governmental oppressions and the summoning of some of these activists. The police forces used violence to scatter the crowd. Shadi Sadr was sent to Evin prison (the same prison where Nazanin Fatehi was held).
