“Kokabee’s cancer is a direct result of the years of denied medical care in prison,” said Hadi Ghaemi, executive director of the Campaign.
“How many more political prisoners will be effectively given a death sentence because the authorities in Iran punish them further by withholding medical care?” asked Ghaemi.

Honored to be a part of this. You can pre-order your copy now in support of a great cause. Worth every penny and it makes the perfect gift:
Poems That Make Grown Women Cry is a selection of poems chosen by 100 of the world’s most widely-admired women (including Judi Dench, Joan Baez, Vanessa Redgrave, Annie Lennox, Meera Syal, Azar Nafisi, Michelle Williams, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Yoko Ono, Mary Beard) with an introduction from each contributor explaining why they chose the specific poem. The anthology is the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Poems That Make Grown Men Cry - 2014’s best-selling poetry anthology. Like its predecessor, the new anthology was put together by the acclaimed writer Anthony Holden and his son, film producer Ben Holden, in partnership with Amnesty International. Published by Simon and Schuster.

English translation of my statement to VOA Persian:
I hope the lifting of sanctions improves day-to-day life for the Iranian people, who have suffered grave economic hardship. However, as the international community resumes business with Iran we must not forget that Iran remains one of the world’s worst human rights violators and that hundreds of political prisoners are still wrongfully incarcerated, including many artists, poets, journalists, activists and cultural figures. It is incumbent upon those entities and governments engaging with Iran to monitor and promote human rights and to advocate on behalf of Iran’s citizens.

Haiti has a bright future with such an inspiring youth.

Saman Naseem is scheduled to be executed in Iran in less than 48 hours, on Feb 19. He was sentenced to death for an offense he was accused of committing when he was 17. He is an ethnic Kurd and has been subjected to severe torture to make him confess. In fact, he has been subjected to brutal torture in just the last few days in an effort to force him to confess on Iranian TV. Iran is one of the tiny handful of countries in the world that continue to execute juvenile offenders.
Please take this easy action immediately and please urge all your contacts to do so.
We have less than two days to save the life of this young man. Your help is urgently needed. Thank you.

RIP Mike Nichols. One of my most cherished experiences was being directed by him early in my career in a deleted scene in Charlie Wilson's War. An actor's director to the core, he was kind, collaborative, nurturing and taught me the value of documentary-watching in preparation for a role. He made an indelible impression on me, one that has shaped me into the actor I am today. Thank you, Mr. Nichols. You will be dearly missed. My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

BREAKING NEWS: At a time when the world’s attention is turned on the successes – and challenges – of advancing the human rights of women and girls across the globe, Amnesty is pleased to announce that today the Senate re-introduced a bipartisan International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA). The abduction of hundreds of schoolgirls in Nigeria is yet another deeply disturbing example of the ways in which violence against girls and women affects every aspect of their lives. IVAWA represents a huge step forward in the U.S government's commitment to ending this globalscourge so that every woman and girl can live a life free from violence and access all of her human rights, including the right to education. Thanks to @Senator Barbara Boxer, @Senator Susan Collins, @Senator Mark Kirk, @Senator Menendez, and @Senator Jeanne Shaheen.

Freeing Sotoudeh and others is a welcome gesture to distance the Iranian government from a brutal history of repression, but Iranians will rightly continue to demand further reforms from within.

“Within a system which denies the existence of basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of the day. Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of isolation, fear of failure. A most insidious form of fear is that which masquerades as common sense or even wisdom, condemning as foolish, reckless, insignificant or futile the small, daily acts of courage which help to preserve man's self-respect and inherent human dignity. It is not easy for a people conditioned by fear under the iron rule of the principle that might is right to free themselves from the enervating miasma of fear. Yet even under the most crushing state machinery courage rises up again and again, for fear is not the natural state of civilized man.”
