The Emergency Campaign to Free Iran’s Political Prisoners was inspired by and formed in solidarity with the Call for unity from supporters, friends, and families of Iran’s political prisoners and the “Burn the Cage, Free the Birds” movement in Europe to free Iran’s political prisoners (@burn_the_cage on Instagram).  It builds off a Statement by Carol Downer and Dolly Veale in late 2020 and is mainly based among, and directed to, people in the U.S. to stand with resisters in Iran. Our mission and goals are spelled out in this Emergency Appeal, and we encourage all who share these concerns and objectives to join with us.

Let Us Unite and Fight Together Against Waves of Suppression in Iran
