IRAN:THE LETTER FROM THE HUNGER STRIKERS IN EVIN PRISON

The text of the claimed letter from the political prisoners who, according to an anonymous source and reported in Kalemeh, have ended their hunger strike.

We will continue to insist on our human rights and the basic rights of all prisoners. We pledge to continue to fight until all prisoners who are part of our beloved nation gain access to their full legal rights.

In honor of our great fellow Green, Mir Hossein Mousavi, and the other figures in the movement such as Mehdi Karroubi, Ayatollah Bayat Zanjani, Zahra Rahavard, Abdollah Nouri, Ezatallah Sahabi, Ahmad Sadr Haj Seyed Javadi, Habiballah Peyman, Ebrahmin Yazdi, and others, including every single fellow Green, we will put an end to our 16-day hunger strike.

We are hopeful that the Tehran Prosecutor and other officials at the judiciary keep their promise of meeting our five demands. We accept the release of Babak Bordbar as a sign of the Tehran Prosecutor’s determination to implement our four other legal and legitimate demands. It is our sincere hope that, as indicated by the representatives at the prosecutor’s office, in addition to legal ramifications for those prison officials who have abused and insulted the prisoners, that the prisoners rights as described in the Prison Regulations are adhered to and implemented as soon as possible.

We are forever grateful to the leaders of the Green Movement, the political parties, media outlets, political and civil activists, students, journalists, and all those inside and outside the country who have been the voice to the outside world for us and our struggling families.
