#RezaNiknami, 27 years old, was arrested on September 22 for leading the protest in his hometown Garmsar, Semnan province.
While his family was forced to remain silent on promises that “something can be done for him,” he committed suicide in prison by taking several pills to avoid a forced confession.
His accusations include disrespecting the Iranian supreme leader and leading the protests; he is charged with Muharebe or “Waging War against God,” which carries the death penalty.
In small, conservative towns, executions are much easier, faster, and quieter.

To Whom It May Concern,
Since September 16th, after the murder of a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, by the so-called morality police, Iranians have been protesting for freedom, human rights, minority rights, and women’s right to self-expression.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has responded with a lethal reaction, killing hundreds of its citizens nationwide with military artillery and arresting thousands.
The ruthless suppression of Iranian demonstrators has reached entirely new heights.
Two detained protesters, Mohsen Shekari and Majid Reza Rahnavard, were put to death on December 8th and 12th, respectively, without going through a fair trial, having access to independent counsel, or having the option to ask for an appeal.
The IR regime is about to execute hundreds of people.
Members of the German parliament, such as Ye-One Rhie, Carlos Kasper, and Martin Diedenhofen, were the first to decide to be political sponsors of several arrested protestors who were given death sentences. Politicians’ backing is vital. When elected officials publicly defend a political prisoner, more attention is attracted to their fate. The media cover their activism, and the attention serves to safeguard innocent prisoners.
We need your help, and we urge you to act quickly to stop this massacre. Your actions can include, but are not limited to, the following:
– Announce your political sponsorship or advocate for the prisoners in imminent danger , .
– Publicly call on all nations to recall their ambassadors from Tehran and to remove all the regime’s diplomats.
– Declare all regime associates, including the IRGC, and the Supreme Leader Khamenei, as terrorist organizations and impose swift sanctions against them.
– Demand that UN specialists keep a close eye on the situation and urge the authorities to take extraordinary measures to halt executions.
I appreciate you taking the time to read this important, sensitive message and offer your support to save lives and the values Iranians are fighting for.
