3 Political Prisoners executed in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, Iran this morning

According to news from Iran this morning, Ramin Hossein Panahi, Loghman Moradi and Zanjar Moradi were executed in Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, Iran. Yesterday, UN Special Rapporteurs on Human Rights had warned of the imminent execution of the three political prisoners. The UN demanded that those sentences be stopped because of the severe torture used to gain the confessions. Also the three did not have proper council or a fair trial.

If you have been on social media the past week, you have probably seen the hashtag   For months now, there has been an online campaign to get the three liberated.

With the continued uprisings, the regime had no other choice but to increase executions and repression of the people. In response to the call by the Iran’s Resistance, free Iranians launch an immediate campaign to expose this brutal crime, calling for:

  1. The urgent call to action by the High Commissioner for Human Rights Ms. Bacheler, Iran’s Special Rapporteurs on Human Rights Mr. Javed Rahman and Mrs. Agnes Calamard to stop the executions in Iran and condemn the crime by the United Nations.
  2.  The Iranian regime must be referred to the UN Security Council for the trial of the regime for the executions and the violations of human rights.

Since this morning, there has been an outpouring of thoughts and prayers across social media.  Especially on Telegram Messenger, Instagram and Twitter. Below are some of the messages, pictures and videos.
