An Iranian friend sent me this letter. Please consider signing the petition linked below (second link):
I am writing this to first inform you of a threat that is facing
Shahrukh Zemani, a labor activist in Iran. Shahrukh has been in jail
for few years now and recently entered a hunger strike. His sole
“crime” is his political activities relating to organizing unions.
Shahrukh went on hunger strike after authorities decided to remove him
from political prisoners’ ward into a ward full of dangerous prisoners.
He has been on hunger strike for about 37 days now. Shahrukh has lost
about 70 pounds so far.
I am asking you to write a few sentences to condemn Shahrukh’s
detention as well as for prisons’ authorities not granting his demand
of being returned to political prisoners’ ward.
Here are few English links about Shahrukh:
