Release Baha'is in Section 209, Evin Prison, Iran sign now

We respectfully request an urgent call to action to save the lives of 7 innocent Baha'is who have been imprisoned in Section 209, Evin Prison, Iran since 2008.

On 15 August 2010 they were each sentenced to a 20-year imprisonment.

The Baha'i International Community categorically rejects all charges against the seven, stating that they are held solely because of religious persecution.

The names of the innocent prisoners are Mrs. Fariba Kamalabadi, Mr. Jamaloddin Khanjani, Mr. Afif Naeimi, Mr. Saeid Rezaie, Mrs. Mahvash Sabet, Mr. Behrouz Tavakkoli, and Mr. Vahid Tizfahm.

The prisoners were accused of "espionage for Israel, insulting religious sanctities and propaganda against the Islamic republic".

U.S President Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, The US State Department, the UK Foreign Office Minister, the Australian Parliament, the United Nations, Amnesty International and many others have roundly condemned the imprisonment and "20-year sentence" of the Baha'is.

The incarceration of the seven Baha'i leaders is the latest development in a deliberate policy of the Iranian government to suffocate the Baha'i community.

Since the beginning of the Baha'i Faith in Iran in 1844, over 20,000 people have been killed and the entire community continues to face harsh persecutions and deprivation of their basic human rights.

We urgently request that the 7 Baha'i named above to be immediately released from prison and that all charges against them be unconditionally dismissed.
