A group of student, women, and human rights activists have formed a campaign in support of student activist Bahareh Hedayat, who is currently serving a nine and a half year prison sentence at Evin Prison. The group is calling on the Iranian government to release her immediately. The individuals who formed campaign have stated that their goal is “to bring the attention of student bodies, world statesmen, and human rights organizations” to the special circumstances of this political prisoner, which according to the campaign, “has been imprisoned because of her courageous criticisms.”
A statement from the founders stated that they will continue their activities until Hedayat has been released from prison. Programs the campaign is considering include writing articles and notes, preparing and sending posters and short videos for her birthday and wedding anniversary, promoting and signing an open letter to ask for her freedom, and a tree planting program inside universities.
