The International day of action to support political prisoners in Iran

Campaign to Free Political Prisoners in Iran (CFPPI) has called, and established 20 June as the international day of action to support political prisoners inIran. The CFPPI formed a special campaign called 20 June Campaign to organize and carry out this event in June 2011, and to gather an international support for the political prisoners inIran. The 20 June campaign organized a wide variety of activities and some of the highlights are listed in this report.

On20 June 2011there was one voice, one united voice demanding the freedom of all political prisoners inIranand echoing the voice of these prisoners beyond the borders of any one country. There was a positive and unanimous international response against the oppression and suppression of freedom of speech and political activities by the Islamic regime inIran.

On20 June 2011there was one widespread call to stop torturing and executing political prisoners inIran, and to free them all immediately and unconditionally.
