Growing Concern Over Secret Execution of Five Protesters in Isfahan

Yesterday, pictures and reports of protests of people of Isfahan in front of the courthouse of this city, located on Nikbakht Street, were published on social networks. The protesters were holding placards. Pictures of five protesters in Dec 2017 whose death sentences were upheld by the Supreme Court, along with the words “immediate abolition of the death penalty,” (لغو فوری اعدام) were on the placards.

On social media, the combination of the three words hashtag #لغو_فوری_اعدام has become a tool of protest in cyberspace. Social media users and Iranian citizens on the streets are concerned about the secret execution of Mehdi Salehi Ghaleh Shahrokhi, Mohammad Bastami, Majid Nazari Kondari, Hadi Kiani and Abbas Mohammadi.

The protests came after the five detainees lost contact with their families. According to sources in the Human Rights Organization of Iran, the five have been cut off from their families for the past two days.

Judiciary officials in the city of Isfahan have caused great concern and anxiety to the families of these detained protesters. They have deliberately instilled in their hearts the fear that the execution of their loved ones will take place soon.

This behavior of Isfahan province Judiciary is a clear example of psychological torture of the relatives of these five protesters, as well as the entire Iranian civil society, who showed in recent days how much they are concerned about these five Dec 2017 protesters’ fate, despite regime’s manipulation and disruption of Internet in Isfahan.

Active Measures & Useful Idiots

Propaganda is neither magic nor omnipotent nor able to change all facts. The most important element in its success or failure is not within the machine, it's outside, in front of it, unaware of its role.

Execution Machine & Intel-Justice

Spontaneous, widespread #اعدام_نکنید should not stop, it increases the price the brutal theocratic regime has to pay for its cruelty, it should continue until all political prisoners are released unconditionally.

Who Said Do Not Execute & Who Said Execute

what we have seen from yesterday until today, in cyberspace, in response to the widespread protests by the government apparatus, draws a pattern of repression that is not limited to cyberspace. The regime has repeatedly used the same tactics to suppress street protests, and will no doubt use the same known methods in the upcoming uprisings.
