On the 151 day of her arbitrary detention my mother Nahid Taghavi was transferred to the women’s wing in Evin prison on Tuesday, 16 March.
She called my uncle and said, that her transfer was only made, because of all the media attention and our campaign to #freenahid.
The women in the wing gave her a warm welcome and told her about all the efforts that are made on international level to free her.
This is a first victory but the campaign and fight for her unconditional and immediate release have to be continued.
For today, I am happy that my mother is not isolated anymore and has the opportunity to talk with all the strong and brave women who are behind bars with her. We should all continue campaigning to free them all.
Special thanks to all the media for tireless covering the story of Nahid Taghavi.
