The Campaign to Free Political Prisoners in Iran (CFPPI) has initiated a campaign during Nowruz (the Persian New Year), which is on March 22 and is also the first day of spring. This year, CFPPI would like to invite everyone to send a New Year greeting card or letter to political prisoners in Iran, especially those who are deprived of medical attention.
Hundreds of political prisoners have been deprived of being with their families and loved ones during the New Year or any other occasions in Iran. Many of these prisoners have not seen their families for months and even years. They have been tortured and many sentenced to death. Receiving a New Year greeting letter or letter could be a sign of robust support for these prisoners. You can send a massage of hope and solidarity to the political prisoners in Iran.
You can send your letter or card to one or several prisoners during the month of March. The list of names and the addresses of some of the prisoners are included below. You also can leave the sender's address blank if you wish to be anonymous. We would like to encourage you to send as many greetings as possible to the prisoners.
This action is a show of solidarity with political prisoners in Iran. This will also sends a clear message to the Islamic regime: We don't let their heartbeats stop
** This campaign is part of Don't Let Their Heartbeats Stop campaign.
Names and details of some of the prisoners. You can choose names from this list or send your letters to any other political prisoner.
