Free Atena Daemi

Atena Daemi is serving seven years in Iran’s most notorious prison. Her crime? Peacefully protesting for women’s rights and an end to the death penalty.

Atena visited cemeteries, handed out leaflets and spoke out on social media. For this, she was arrested in 2016. Her sham trial lasted just 15 minutes.

In Evin Prison – which houses Iran’s most violent criminals – she’s been severely beaten, pepper-sprayed and locked up in solitary confinement. Just for standing up to the establishment.

What we're

We're mobilising thousands of our supporters globally to demand Atena's freedom through protests, letters, emails, petitions and tweets.

We're also putting pressure on the Iranian authorities to give Atena urgent medical care and to investigate her torture allegations.

Your support has helped free political prisoners in Iran before, so we know this kind of campaigning works.

And we've got over 7 million people like you that we know will help us fight for change.

We are a movement of ordinary people from around the world standing up for human rights.

We research human rights abuses and expose them in the international media. We lobby governments and inspire people to campaign for change. Together, we've helped change hundreds of laws, secured the release of thousands of prisoners, and improved millions of lives.
