London, Jun 29 - A former Iranian political prisoner has written a moving op-ed for The Hill about the importance of the Free Iran rally and a strong political opposition.
Farzad Madadzadeh, who was released in 2014 after five years’ imprisonment, said: “Needless to say, it is a significant international event regarding an important international issue. But for me, it is very personal. In spirit, I will be with a much larger crowd. We will be joined by countless Iranians still living under the thumb of the theocratic regime, who will risk reprisals to watch the proceedings on banned satellite television channels.”
