To: The nomination committee for Student Peace Prize
Subject: Ahmad Batebi
While expressing our admiration for your efforts in defending and supporting
student struggles in defence of free speech throughout the world, we would
like to put forward the name of Ahamad Batebi as a suitable candidate for
this year's nomination.
Ahmad Batebi was arrested last autumn following student demonstrations
in Iran when in protest against repeated violations of free speech he was
detained for raising the blood stained T-shirt of a fellow student. He
was imprisoned and given a 15 years sentence. Since his arrest he has
been under severe torture, however he continues his struggle in prison
with hunger strikes and protest letters to judicial authorities in Iran.
Currently Ahmad Batebi is a symbol of the democratic Youth movement
in Iran. We hope that by naming him as the winner of the student peace
prize, you could show your support for the young generation of Iranians
who are fighting for democracy.
