While there are hundreds of political prisoners and non-political prisoners in Iran who are awaiting execution, these days the focus has been shifted on only one person, leaving everyone else, especially political prisoners far behind.

While it may be easier and more politically correct to jump on a single popular band wagon, I think it is crucial for us to keep in mind the fact that these hundreds (if not more) prisoners and in particular political prisoners are at risk of imminent execution. This is especially so because while all eyes are on the campaign for Ms. Sakineh Ashtinani, it is much easier for the Regime to execute other political prisoners without having to worry about a negative reaction from the international community.

As a pro-democracy activist I see it as my duty to remind everyone that there are many political prisoners who could use the help of the international campaigns, and if we remain silent today, tomorrow might be too late. In the past year alone at least 6 Kurdish political prisoners Ehsan Fatahiyan, Farzad Kamangar, Shirin Alam Holi, Fasih Yasamini, Ali Heydariyan and Farhad Vakili have been executed by the Islamic Regime.

Currently there are at least 19 Kurdish prisoners who are currently awaiting execution. Let’s remember them.
