Iranian Culture and Art Club: 1988 Political Prisoner Commemoration Event

ProducerParvin Malek
DescriptionFarsi-language program. An Iranian Culture and Art Club hosted event with speakers and music commemorating the lives of over 4,000 dissident prisoners massacred in Iran in 1988. Some were executed and others were subjected to torture. The victims were intellectuals, students, left-wingers, members of the People's Mojahedin Organisation of Iran (MEK), other opposition parties and ethnic and religious minorities of all ages. Many had originally been sentenced for non-violent offenses such as distributing newspapers and leaflets, taking part in demonstrations or collecting funds for prisoners' families, according to a report published by Amnesty International, an NGO, in 1990.
