Tireless advocate

I made this choice because Maryam Namazie has been a tireless advocate for the human rights and dignity of all Iranians, at home and abroad. She has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to justice and equality for all and she is a brilliant critic of injustice and hypocrisy wherever she sees it. Maryam Namazie's work with International Federation of Iranian Refugees (IFIR) and Committee for Humanitarian Assistance to Iranian Refugees (CHAIR) has been an inspiration to all who cherish justice and condemn brutality.


Daughter to a cause

This is to nominate Maryam Namazie, my daughter, as Iranian of the Year.

She has put her life on hold to help Iranian refugees of all religions to a better life. Her dedication is limitless. And although we have lost a daughter to good cause, we have been honored and privileged to have a daughter like her. She has made our life richer and more transparent and aware.



I am voting for Maryam Namazie as Iranian of the year! She's been a tremendous advocate. during the past year.


True humanitarian

Because o f her work defending refugee rights, opposing the Islamic Republic of Iran, and promoting equality and freedom with the International Federation of Iranian Refugees (IFIR) and the Committee For Humanitarian Assistance to Iranian Refugees (CHAIR). She is a true humanitarian and should be recognized for her efforts!
