IHRDC is proud to launch "Unlock Iran" - a campaign to raise awareness about human rights violations in Iran and tell the stories of 10 prisoners of rights incarcerated today. Join us and use your digital voice to #UnlockIran.
The very things we celebrate (exercise of intellectual, political, religious and artistic freedom of expression and association) have jailed lawyers, artists, scientists and other prominent citizens in Iran. On March 3rd, IHRDC will launch Unlock Iran - a campaign to raise awareness about human rights violations in Iran and tell the stories of 10 prisoners of rights incarcerated today.
At least 800 prisoners of rights are currently jailed in Iran’s prisons for exercising their basic rights and freedoms. With new leadership in Iran, and renewed international engagement with the country, we are in an optimal position to take the existing groundswell and pivot it towards human rights issues.
UNLOCK IRAN is an immersive digital campaign led by the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center (IHRDC) to amass awareness and dialogue around Iran’s “prisoners of rights”—individuals jailed for their beliefs, lifestyle or profession—in the lead up to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva in March 2014. Use your digital voice today to stand up for prisoners of rights and #UnlockIran
