5 more EXECUTED in Evin Prision, Iran’s notorious Alcatraz

More lives cut short

Early this morning Farzad Kamangar, Ali Heydarian, Farhad Vakilie, Shirin Alamhouli and Mehdi Eslamian were executed in the notorious Evin Prison, Iran’s Alcatraz, in Tehran.

They were convicted of crimes against national security and affiliations with separatist groups such as the PKK (a Kurdish Separatist Party) charges that the defendants had adamantly denied.

Neither their lawyers nor the families of the defendants were aware of the executions and as such upon hearing the news a sit-in was organized in protest to the state executions.

In a show of solidarity Iranians in Europe (Berlin, Frankfurt, Paris and London) organized protests with Toronto and Washington DC soon to join.
