Arrested for her art

Atena_Farghadani228x305 28-year-old Atena Farghadani is being detained in Tehran’s Evin Prison for producing art work critical of the Iranian government.

She was on a hunger strike for nearly a month to protest against the conditions in which she was being held, and in March she suffered a heart attack and lost consciousness.

Atena’s case goes to trial on Tuesday.

Call upon the Iranian authorities to release her and all other prisoners of conscience immediately and unconditionally.
