The Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh has been arrested after she questioned the Iranian judiciary. She is one of the best-known human rights defenders in Iran.
Today we join to demand the liberation of Nasrin together. That’s how it’s done:
- Write 1-2 sentences to Nasrin and add the hashtag #FREENASRIN. The common hashtag is the most important thing!
- We all post it on the SAME DAY, WEDNESDAY, at the SAME TIME, 20.30 in Iran, 18.00 in Brussel, 17.00 London, 12. p.m. North America (Est: 12.00, Gst: 11.00 a.m. & Pst: 9.00 a.m.)
Last Wednesday, her husband wrote on Facebook that Nasrin Sotoudeh was arrested and sent to Tehran’s Evin Prison. He wrote “Of all the functions that governments of the world are expected to do, the Iranian one is only good in arresting and imprisoning innocent people.” Nasrin Sotoudeh was arrested without an official warrant, because she supported young women in their protest against the hijab.

During the art festival 48h Neukölln in Berlin the artists of the Women’s Museum Berlin will exhibit their works and ask visitors to enter the exhibition room alone or in pairs. Visitors are invited to communicate their true impressions about the art works. In the center is the question: How do I perceive art, and how do I express my feelings about it? Which vocabulary do I have for that?
Any visitor who has truly dealt with art and has written down his words will be rewarded with an FMB cloth bag – REAL TIME ART *.
Caroline Armand, Andrea Golla, Susanne Kienbaum, Rachel Kohn, Zuzanna Schmukalla, Annette Selle, Sibylla Weisweiler und Elgin Willigerodt.
