Free Kurdish Women's Rights Activist Ronak Saffarzadeh

  • by: Jennifer P.
  • recipient: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Chief Justice Sadeq Larijani
Ronak Saffarzadeh is a Kurdish activist and member of the One Million Signatures Campaign for the Repeal of Discriminatory Laws Against Women. In 2008, she was arrested for distributing pamphlets about "education in Kurdish language and objection to honor killings," and was sentenced to six and a half years in prison.

Sign this petition to urge Iranian President Ahmadinejad and Chief Justice Larijani to release Saffarzadeh immediately and unconditionally.

In 2009, Saffarzadeh lost an appeal of her sentence for "propagating against the regime." Since that time, she has been serving her prison term in the Sanandaj Central Prison, where she is housed with dangerous criminals who have repeatedly attacked and injured her.

Sign now to call on the Iranian government to release Saffarzadeh, who is being held unjustly and whose life is in immediate danger.
