Mahmoud Bagheri: Prisoner of the day

Union activist

JARAS: Mahmoud Bagheri, a member of the Board of Directors of Iranian Teachers' Association, began serving his 9.5 year prison sentence on 26 June when he appeared at the Evin Prison Court following receiving a summons.

According to JARAS reporters, Mahmoud Bagheri was summoned to begin serving his time two months ago, but when his school appealed to the Judge presiding over his case at the Evin Prison Court, the Judge agreed to delay his imprisonment until after school finals.

The 9.5 year prison sentence for Bagheri, a Tehran physics teacher with 27 years of teaching experience, has shocked his colleagues.

Bagheri spent one month in Evin Prison's Ward 209 in 2007 because of demonstrations he attended in February and March of 2007, to protest the low wages of teachers . That arrest lead to a trial in which Mahmoud Bagheri was sentenced to 3.5 years' suspended prison term.

He was again arrested on June 29, 2010 for his activities in the Iranian Teachers' Association. He spent three months in the Intelligence Ministry's Ward 209 inside Evin Prison. He was later sentenced to six years in prison and an appeals court upheld his sentence.

Mahmoud Bagheri is an Iran-Iraq War veteran who requires ungoing medical attention.

Jailing, torturing and murdering our Teachers.....

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

is indeed one of the trade marks of this corrupt, thieving, murdering Islamist regime. 

But mahmoud's "crime" in the eyes of Islamo Fascist terrorists ruling our homeland  is two folds, because he is also trying to organise an independent Union for the teachers.

Lucky are the teachers of the world

by divaneh on

They are lucky that the management of the world has not been handed to the IRI. That means they can complain about their low pay and demand a fair wage without being prisoned for nine years. A Physics teacher going to the prison for objecting to poverty while a Roze Khan enjoy fat accounts in foreign banks. What a country.


درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


Iranians of all walks of life taking a stand for their freedom and just rights.  They are to be commanded and supported by all freedom loving folks.


  Iranians need to stand united in their support for these brave souls, support their goals and aspiration for a  free independent and prospers Iran. 


Foreign nations which thru their apartheid policy practice the same insanity and unjust detentions cannot be a good example for the future of Iran and need not to apply.

Islamist Rapists

by Fred on

Regime change is the only way out, the rest is just talk.

Messianic Islamist Rapists, "reformist" and all,  are unreformable, anti-Iran & Iranians and need to go.

Backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval inspection is a must.
