Stop! don't imprison Abed Tavancheh

On December 6, 2007, the leftist political activist, Abad Tavancheh, wasreleased on a large bail, after undergoing arrest and interrogation. Then,on April 15th, 2008, he was summoned to the Revolutionary Courts inMarkazi Province and was sentenced to eight months in prison.He was given twenty days to appeal.As there has been a rush to finalize the case, he has not been given thechance to work on his appeal case properly. Moreover, his lawyer was notpresent in many sessions of the court and he and his family are under hugepressure. Therefore, a campaign has been established to support AbedTavanche and his family. Based on the individual's definite right tofreedom, we assert that we reject any sentence which contradicts humanrights.We ask you to step up in his support and stop the imprisonment of a fellowstudent activist for practicing his right to free-thinking. We believethat this is not only about one individual, and if not stopped will set anexample for increasing pressure of all leftist activists.Sincerely, The Campaign for Support of Abed TAvanche
