Statement of 750 Women and Democracy Activists on the Tragic Death of Haleh Sahabi

Change for Equality: Over 700 women’s rights and democracy activists have issued a statement protesting the violence that caused the death of women’s rights activist, member of Mother’s for Peace and religious scholar, Haleh Sahabi. The translated text of the statement appears below.

Haleh Sahabi, mother of peace, the daughter of light, flew to the heavens and left us. June 1 was a day of gloom, a day for cries, a day to demand justice in the face of unspeakable injustice. The women’s movement and the democratic movement of the people of Iran, have lost Haleh, but not to a peaceful death. They took her from us, while she was standing and protesting. They seized her life. They stole her voice and her fist, and under the cover of the night’s darkness they stole her lifeless body too, so as to bury her watchful eyes under the cold ground of the earth.

Today is not the day for condolences. It is a day of protest! View the signatures in Farsi on the site of Change for Equality Read more1 »
