I thought you might be interested in the most popular photograph in Iran regarding the Student Movement...

This young student is AHMAD BATEBI. He has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment by the Islamic Republic of Iran.

His "crime" has been none other than having been identified in this photo. He was holding up the tshirt of one of the students beaten and I believe killed on July 9th, 1999.

I am also providing a link to a letter from him from prison where he as been since 1999.

Reads just like the Iraqi torture chambers.
Disgusting.
The letter is dated 2000, any news since then about this young man?

Heart breaking to know he is only one of many...
