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.

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

Atena has been severely beaten by prison guards, and her health has deteriorated alarmingly.  She has already endured two years in jail. Five more years are simply unthinkable.

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.

Our supporters have helped free political prisoners in Iran before, so we know this kind of campaigning works.

Become part of a movement of over 7 million 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. 

Please stand with us with a monthly gift.

All donations go to support Amnesty International UK Section Charitable Trust.
