NCRI - The Political prisoner Mr. Soheil Arabi on the forty-sixth day of his strike at Tehran's Great Prison has sent the following message:
Iran Uprising - No. 115-Fire Festival
Threats and measures by the mullahs’ regime, beginning from late February and following a call made by the Social Department of the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) issued on February 21, to confront the suppressed nation’s anger during the country’s “Fire Festivital,” is continuing in the past few days.
Iranian Resistance calls for saving the life of the political prisoner, Soheil Arabi, who has been on hunger strike for 48 days. It also askes all international authorities, especially the High Commissioner for Human Rights and rapporteurs on arbitrary arrests, torture and the right to life, to take immediate and effective action to save the life of this political prisoner who is in a very grave situation.
The youths of the uprising across the country are determined to turn the Charshanbeh Suri fiesta (the Iranian National fire festival) into an epic step towards the end of the mullahs’ sinister regime.
