Free Azita

Help free Azita Shafagghat & her husband Ahmad-Reza Shafaggat from the Turkish prison.

Apart from being active members of the student movements of 1999, both Azita and Ahmad-Reza were converted to Christianity which under the current Islamic law in Iran, is punishable by death. In 1999, they were arrested for their opposition to the Mullahs regime and were subjected to all kinds of physical and psychological torture in RAJAYI-SHAHR PRISON, west of Tehran. After escaping Mullahs prison, Azita and her husband spent 4 years in hiding until May, 2006, when they managed to escape from Iran. Azita and her husband and 10 other Iranians are due to be handed over to the criminal Mullahs regime.

Done! Well, it's not done yet, but it will be. Dang, I don't see how we can hand anyone over to those murderous cutthroats!

I'll link you to my Sunday post. Let's hope it helps!
