FREE Saeed Malekpour, Canadian Resident sentenced to death in Iran
I’m Farah Mawani, co-founder of the Free the Hikers campaign that successfully freed my dear friends, Josh Fattal, Shane Bauer, and Sarah Shourd from over 2 years of captivity by the Iranian regime.
And freed me and all their loved ones from over 2 years of living hell.
I have never appreciated my FREEDOM more than during that nightmare, and I live by Nelson Mandela’s wise words:
“For to be FREE is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
So I support the campaign to FREE Saeed and urge you to do the same and speak out loud and clear against his imminent execution. Like Josh, Shane and Sarah, he needs us to be the voice that is being stolen from him. He needs us to fight for the human rights he is being denied. He needs us to fight for his life. The life that will be taken from him if we are silent.
