Navideshahed: Students and staff of the Universities Union and the Association of the Islamic seminary will be fasting on Monday April, 23, as it has been named the day of expressing solidarity with captives who are on hunger strike.

They will also be gathering in front of the United Nations office in Tehran. These associations have requested everyone to keep a political fast and gather in front of the office of the United Nation against their silence on this issue. It is to be said that on this day many people from different cities around the world will be demonstrating too. The statement released from these organizations is as follows:

The oppressive and unjust rulers, whether in the name of Islam or otherwise, do not have what it takes to stand up against the strong humanitarian desires (of the people). Maybe it is written by God that when (want of) full stomachs and the worship of lust is turned into the want for humanitarian values, men and women who are strong will come to the field, not for their own freedoms, but to be a hand in achieving the freedoms for humanity. We congratulate such steadfast determination that has brought disbelief and hypocrisy to its knees.

Khadar Adnan, the resistor who did not touch food for 67 days in the prison of Zionist regime convoyed the spirit of resistance to lioness Hina Shalbi and resulted in tens of days of her hunger strike.

Both of these resistors have now been freed and as a result of their resistance 1600 Palestinian prisoners have also started a collective hunger strike however, it was not limited to just this, it went beyond the borders of the infidels and latched onto the collars of the hypocrites and showed itself in the presence of Abdul Hadi al-Khawaja in the prisons of Bahrain.

Today, after the two months of hunger strike by Khawaja, much of the world has woken up to the desecration of human rights in Bahrain and with such a small existence, no reaction is yet to be seen from the government of Bahrain. Just like the torturing of prisoners in the prisons of the Zionist regime has turned into a nightmare for the Zionists, the mistreatment of Khawaja will also blow in the face of the scandalous Aal-Khalifa.The defense of Human Rights does not recognize any geographical boundaries or religious sects; hence we, the Associations of the people and the Associations of the university students and also the Islamic Seminary, have decided that in support of all the prisoners who have been captured for the sake of defending their freedom, will fast and hence we declare Sunday as “The day of solidarity with the prisoners who are on hunger strike.”?

Also, in co-ordination with the fast which is being done in the hope of freeing the prisoners, we will be demonstrating in front of the United Nations office in Tehran as a result of their silence and blindness regarding this desecration of human rights and oppression at 5pm.


Signatories: Students Justice, Students of the Islamic World, Independent Union of Islamic Student Groups, The Office for Implementation of Unity, Islamic Society of Students, The International Union of the Unified Ummah, Group of Seminary Students of the Islamic Awakening, Institute for the representatives of the Islamic seminary students of Qum, Institute for Religious Dialogue.
