Not a peep out of NOW. Kim Gandy, why are you silent about your sisters in the women's rights movement in Iran being arrested and tortured?
related brief piece on National Review
“...Ms. Kazemi was arrested while she was photographing outside the notorious Evin prison in Tehran. The authorities first said that she had died of a stroke and then claimed that she had fallen and hit her head, but a committee appointed by Mohammad Khatami, the reformist who was president at the time, announced that she had died of a fatal blow to her head that had caused her brain to hemorrhage.
The judiciary charged an intelligence agent, Muhammad Reza Aghdam Ahmadi, with semi-intentional murder, and he was eventually acquitted. But lawyers representing Ms. Kazemis family have said that Mr. Ahmadi was just a scapegoat, and they have accused a prison official, Muhammad Bakhshi, of inflicting the blow..”
Not a good idea to be a self-professed “activist” in Iran .....
(that is, if you want to be seen alive)
