Imprisoned Women Must be Released Immediately
United Republicans of Iran calls for an immediate and unconditional release of women activist arrested by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
These women were attacked and arrested while holding a peaceful vigil in front of Tehran’s Revolutionary Court, protesting a recent crackdown on their activities and summoning their leaders before the courts.
Discriminatory laws of the Islamic Republic have made the brave women of Iran a second class citizen.
Since the revolution of 1979 in Iran the women have been at the forefront of the civil and democratic movement. They had waged a campaign to collect one million signatures to force the Iranian Government to change the laws.
URI calls upon all freedom-loving people of the world to contact the Iranian Embassies in their country condemning this barbaric attack and demand for an immediate release of the women.
