Yashar Darolshafaei: Prisoner of the day

Jailed on national security charges and insulting president

GVF — Student activist Yashar Darolshafaei has referred to Evin Prison to serve out his jail-term.

According to opposition site Kaleme, Darolshafaei, a postgraduate student at Tehran University, has begun serving a 5 ½ year prison sentence.

Darolshafaei was initially arrested on 4 November 2009 and spent three weeks in Evin Prison. He was arrested again on 10 February that year along with six other members of his family, including his mother and brother. He was released 32 days later.

A court presided over by Judge Salavati later sentenced Darolshafaei to seven years in jail for national security charges and insulting the president. The sentence was later commuted to 5 ½ years.

The young activist was formerly the head of a pro-reform student organization at the Imam khomeini International University of Qazvin.

by Zendanian on

Dear friends, contrary to war mongers on
this site, Political Prisoners in Iran need our support in their
defense NOW, without any delay,and can not wait for a "regime change" or
sanctions to come to free them from their prison cell.

Keep in mind that all these political prisoners inside Iran also oppose sanctions, and war.

Also, please recall, there have been many cases of Iranian Political
Prisoners being freed from jail due to public pressure put on officials
of IR. With all the resources at our disposal, it would take only a
moment to write a letter of protest in support of Political Prisoners in
Iran. But such small actions will go a long way for our most brave
Political Prisoners in Iran. Lets not leave them alone in their hour of

Please do take a minute out of your schedule and send this protest letter below, or you own version. Many thanks in advance 


I (we) am writing to protest the continued persecution of student  activists and the gross violation of Human Rights in Iran. We
continue to witness many student activists brutally persecuted and unjustly imprisoned in Iran.

In particular, this letter is written to express my (our)
serious concern about the health and well being of

Mr. Yashar Darolshafaei, and  all other political prisoners in Iran and call on the
Islamic Republic of Iran to respect the right of  all Iranians   to
organize, assemble and freedom of religion, association and expression.  




Please send your protests letters to:,,;;,,,;;;;

An injury to one, is an injury to all.


Regime change for Yashar's sake

by Fred on

Regime change is the only way to end this 34 year nightmare.

 Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all will continue with their barbarism to the very last moment that they are overthrown.

 Backbreaking airtight sanctions plus air/naval quarantine is a must.
