WE MUST RISE UP FOR THE RELEASE OF ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS
Farangis Mazloum, the mother of anarchist political prisoner Soheil Arabi, has been on hunger strike since August 16, 2019, in protest against her illegal arrest and uncertain situation. She is currently in an isolation cell at ward 209 in the notorious Evin prison in northern Tehran, which belongs to the Ministry of Intelligence Service. Farangis Mazloum was arrested on July 22, 2019 by eight civilian-clad security police.
Due to heart disease, the hunger strike can affect her physical and mental state, and also increase the family’s anxiety. It is worth noting that the prison authority has interrupted her visit and contacts with all family members to be able to pressure her even more.
Herewith, The Anarchist Union of Afghanistan & Iran proposes and calls on all the anarchist groups in the world to form a Solidarity Committee for the release of all political prisoners, including Soheil Arabi and Farangis Mazloum.
