Atena Daemi is jailed for her beliefs against the death penalty.

Like so many, Atena dreams of an end to the death penalty in Iran. She writes Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram posts, hands out leaflets, joins peaceful protests. Incredibly, these simple actions were used as "evidence" to sentence her to 7 years in prison. Her trial took only 15 minutes and she's faced violence and degrading treatment behind bars. 

It's one more crucial example of Iran silencing peaceful activism.

Tell Iran that Atena must go free today!

Demand Atena's freedom in Iran!
