Dont imprison Abed Tavanche

Stop! don't imprison Abed Tavancheh On December 6, 2007, the leftist political activist, Abad Tavancheh, was released on a large bail, after undergoing arrest and interrogation. Then, on April 15th, 2008, he was summoned to the Revolutionary Courts in Markazi 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 the chance to work on his appeal case properly. Moreover, his lawyer was not present in many sessions of the court and he and his family are under huge pressure. Therefore, a campaign has been established to support Abed Tavanche and his family. Based on the individual's definite right to freedom, we assert that we reject any sentence which contradicts human rights. We ask you to step up in his support and stop the imprisonment of a fellow student activist for practicing his right to free-thinking. We believe that this is not only about one individual, and if not stopped will set an example for increasing pressure of all leftist activists. Sincerely, The Campaign for Support of Abed TAvanche
