5 South Azerbaijani Activists on Hunger Strike

Latif Hassani (43), Mahmoud Fazli (45), Shahram Radmehr (38), Ayat Mehr Ali Bayglu (35) and Behboud Gholi Zade (48) all are on a hunger strike to protest the verdict of the Tabriz Islamic Revolutionary Court. The court of the Iranian regime has sentenced each of them to 9 years in prison.


The 5 activists are on the twelfth day of their hunger strike and their medical condition is worsening.

The Iranian regime continues to violate the basic human rights of more than thirty five million South Azerbaijani Turks, and does not hesitate to arrest, torture, and imprison peaceful activists.
