Savage interrogation

Prominent Iranian unionist and member of the syndicate of the workers of Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane complex, Ali Nejati, was taken to hospital on December 13, after "being harshly pressured under interrogation", the syndicate reported.
"Nejati is suffering from heart complication," the syndicate reiterated on its Telegram channel, adding, "he is suffering from several illnesses, including heart problems, and keeping him behind bars might seriously endanger his life."
Ali Nejati was arrested on Thursday, November 29 and his attorney, Farzaneh Zilabi, said that her client has been charged with "disrupting public order", "collusion and assembly against national security" and "cooperation in establishing a group intended to disrupt peace and security".
According to the syndicate, security forces stormed Nejati's house without presenting any legal warrants and arrested Mr. Nejati, his son, Payman, and his guest with force and violence. After interrogation, Mr. Nejati’s son and his guest were released, but Mr. Nejati remained in custody.
Furthermore, the syndicate has called upon all trade unions and relevant institutions in Iran and across the world to support Nejati and a young civil rights activist and journalist, Ms. Sepideh Qolian, who was arrested alongside him.

Earlier, the syndicate had also reported that the representative of the workers of Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane mill, Esmaeil Bakhshi, and Ms. Qolian were under mental and physical pressure.
Bakhshi was released on Wednesday, December 12, while Ms. Qolian is still behind bars.
Workers of Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane complex are currently on strike, demanding overdue wages and demanding the return of their plant's ownership to the Public Sector.

Iranian Bobby Sands

Vahid Nasiri, Iranian political prisoner, died of hunger strike, just like how Bobby Sands died. 

 

Billionaire General

U.S. State Dept:

This Iranians have much to despair about. Their government is full of corrupt hypocrites. Meet Sadegh Mahsouli—The Billionaire General. Somehow he had a knack for winning lucrative construction and oil contracts from IRGC businesses. He is now worth billions.

Sultan of Sugar

U.S. State Dept:

Unfortunately, this is a reminder for Iranians that their government is full of corrupt hypocrites. Meet Grand Ayatollah Makaram Shirazi—The Sultan of Sugar. He made millions flooding the market with expensive imported sugar, putting Iranian people out of work.

Billionaire Ayatollah

U.S. State Dept:

Today is . Sadly, for the Iranian people, their government is full of corrupt hypocrites. Take Ayatollah Khamenei, who has a tax-free hedge fund worth billions. This so-called holy man devours property from religious minorities, then funnels the cash to IRGC.

 

Deal with it

After reports that Democrats were attempting to reverse a 181-year-old ban on headwear on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Jackson made a comment on his radio show, calling out Rep.-elect Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who wears a hijab.

“The floor of Congress is now going to look like an Islamic republic,” Jackson said, according to the Hill. “We are a Judeo-Christian country.” He continued, “We are a nation rooted and grounded in Christianity and that’s that. And anybody that doesn’t like that, go live somewhere else. It’s very simple. Just go live somewhere else. Don’t try to change our country into some sort of Islamic republic or try to base our country on Sharia law.”

Omar and Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., will be the first Muslim women in Congress.

Omar responded to Jackson on Friday through Twitter.

Well sir, the floor of Congress is going to look like America...

And you’re gonna have to just deal

Slow death

U.S. State Dept:

U.S. condemns arbitrary detention of Dr. Farhad Meisami. We are deeply concerned about his rapidly deteriorating health and call on Iranian regime to immediately release him. The people of deserve a govt that respects their rights, not one that subjects them to slow death.

Common sense

Author Roya Hakakian's reaction to this fake news from PBS.

It's coverage like this that sows mistrust of press which Trump&fans thrive on. exercised NO common sense here, let alone good journalism. Nearly every fact is skewed or wrong or out of context.

The cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer on the left was murdered by inmates in the penitentiary. on the right, the murderer Ali Khamenei the lifetime Führer of the Islamist fascists ruling over Iran.

Many strange similarities between the two, one has to wait and see how this one’s life ends.   

Nasrin's hunger strike

Liberty:

A prominent Iranian rights activist and political prisoner has started a hunger strike to support another prisoner of conscience whose health is deteriorating in prison.

Nasrin Sotoudeh’s family announced on November 26 that she has started a hunger strike in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison to protest the deteriorating health of Farhad Meysami, who himself has been on hunger strike for more than 110 days. She has told the family that she demands Meysami’s release.

Mr. Meysami who is a medical doctor was detained in July for protesting compulsory hijab and has been accused of supporting “moral corruption” and anti-regime propaganda. He started his hunger strike on August 1.

Meysami’s lawyer in Iran told Radio Farda in an interview on November 26 that his client’s health is in serious danger and his only crime is to have protested compulsory hijab.

Amnesty International issued a statement on October 24 condemning the authorities for holding Meysami in isolation in a medical clinic to force him to give up his hunger strike. Amnesty demanded his immediate release.

Ms. Sotoudeh, who had served half of a six-year prison term before, was arrested again in June and her husband Reza Khandan was arrested in early September.
