Political prisoners in Iran continuing hunger strike

By Shahriar Kia

In Iran, three political prisoners by the names of Rasoul Razavi, Morteza Morad Pour and Hossein Ali Mohammadi have continued their hunger strike on November 12th

Protesting regime officials’ refusal to release him, Razavi remains steadfast on his hunger strike since October 4th after being exiled to Gohardasht Prison of Karaj, west of Tehran.

40 days after his hunger strike the Razavi family remained in the dark about his deteriorating health conditions.

Mohammadi has also launched an indefinite hunger strike, protesting being beaten by Tabriz Prison officials and prison guards. He was punished by the authorities by being transferred toward 12 where non-political and dangerous criminals are held.

Moradpour remains on hunger strike as well, protesting his release being postponed and launching a hunger strike on October 25th as a result.
