Manchester Amnesty Weekly Action
Please do this action and make a difference.
Anoosheh Ashoori is a retired British father and husband who has been arbitrarily imprisoned in Iran for over four years. Anoosheh was visiting his elderly mother in Tehran when he was arrested by Ministry of Intelligence agents in August 2017 and arbitrarily detained in Evin prison.
Earlier this week, Anoosheh began a hunger strike to protest his unjust imprisonment in Iran for over 4 years.
Stand in solidarity with him by signing the petition demanding action from the UK government to secure his release:
Last week, because of huge collective action across the country, the House of Lords removed some of the worst parts of the Policing Bill. The bill will now go back to the Commons and it is possible that some of the amendments will be reinstated.
If you haven’t already done so, please email your MP to show your opposition to the bill.
