Urgent Action: Jailed for reporting on workers’ protests

Iranian journalists Amir Amirgholi, Sanaz Alahyari and Amirhossein Mohammadifar have been arbitrarily detained since January 2019 without access to a lawyer. They are facing trial on spurious national security charges solely in connection with their reporting on workers’ rights protests in Khuzestan province, southern Iran. Amir Amirgholi and Sanaz Alahyari are being denied adequate medical care. All three must be released immediately and unconditionally.

Take action.
