March 8th and the 10 Days With Bahareh Hedayat campaign

10 years is not a number, it is a life – a lifetime.

Committee of Human Rights Reporters – In commemoration with March 8th (International Women’s Day), a group of student’s rights and women’s rights activists have launched a new campaign in support of jailed activist Bahareh Hedayat. This campaign – while stressing that Bahareh Hedayat is in poor health – demands her release from prison, and asks the people of Iran, officials of the country, and the international community to pay attention to the situation of this prominent women’s and student’s rights activist.

The entries received by the Bahareh Hedayat Campaign will be published in the Free Bahareh Hedayat facebook page.

“Stand with us in commemoration of March 8th and the 10 Days With Bahareh Hedayat campaign.”

The 10 Days With Bahareh Hedayat campaign will be launched on March 8th to share information about her – each day one aspect of Bahareh’s work and character will be celebrated.

This campaign is in protest of the unjust 10-year prison sentence handed for demanding the basic human rights of human beings. We hope that in the coming days, we can draw the attention of the people of Iran, officials in charge of the country, and the international community to the situation of Bahareh Hedayat. In accordance with Article 134 of the new Islamic Penal Code, Bahareh is entitled to prison release after serving half of her prison sentence. With consideration to the fact that she has spent 4.5 years of her 10-year prison term behind bars and she is in poor health, we call for her release via this campaign.
