Iranian teacher unionist still alive, but remains at risk

Posted: November 27, 2008 in Uncategorized

According to Education International

Teachers, trade unionists and human rights defenders around the world are mobilising in defence of Farzad Kamangar, an Iranian Kurdish teacher and trade unionist who is at risk of execution.

Education International received information from reliable sources that on 26 November Kamangar was taken from his cell 121 in ward 209 of Tehran’s Evin prison in preparation for execution by hanging. However, the latest information is that he is still alive and was able to meet with his lawyer Wednesday. His situation remains precarious nonetheless.

If you haven’t yet done so, please send a message to Iranian President Ahmadinejad demanding justice for Farzad Kamanger.

    I sent my letter yesterday. Let’s hope this is not just a delaying tactic.
