Preliminary Update VI

Declaration of a group of families of the jailed students in Iran

TO ALL INDIVIDUALS, ORGANIZATIONS, AND INSTITUTIONS DEFENDING FREEDOM AND HUMANIST VALUES IN IRAN AND ACROSS THE WORLD

During the past month-and-a-half a large number of university students have been arrested at the universities or in towns throughout Iran whose “crime” has been defending human rights and humanist values through organizing or taking part in December 7th (Student Day) actions. They are currently held in prisons, suffering various forms of abusive treatment. During this period, their families have been permitted only one short visit with their children. They have also been under constant, intense emotional stress, while at the same time protesting the detention of their sons and daughters several times demanding their release.

Yet, despite all the efforts made to free the jailed students, a large group of them are still held in solitary cells under inhuman conditions, and some of them have not yet been allowed any visitation with their families – not even a phone call.

We hereby appeal to you honorable, libertarian people inside and outside Iran, and to all institutions and organizations defending freedom across the world, to continue your efforts and, further, participate in the International Week of Action for the Release of Jailed Students in Iran (Feb. 2nd to Feb. 9th, 2008) and actively demonstrate your protest against the students’ incarceration and abuse. Celebrating National Student Day (December 7th) is the students’ right, and all imprisoned students must be released immediately and unconditionally.

Please send your letters of support to: studentsfreedom@gmail.com.

A group of families of the jailed students;
Groups of students at Allaame University, Polytechnic, Chamraan University (Ahvaz), Baahonar University (Shiraz), University of Mashad.
