Angels Of Iran: A Voice for the Voiceless: Roxana Saberi
Featuring journalist Roxana Saberi and Iran Specialist for Amnesty International USA Elise Auerbach, “A Voice for the Voiceless: Roxana Saberi” from the Angels of Iran series tells the story of Roxanna Saberi’s time in prison with Mahvash Sabet and Fariba Kamalabadi. These two were members of the Yaran (“the Friends”), who were sentenced to 20 years in prison simply for helping administer the needs of the Baha’i community in Iran. As Roxana says in the video, “I think the lessons that Mahvash and Fariba taught me in prison are universal. And they can apply to anybody, anywhere in the world. You don’t have to be in prison…. We have our own prisons, our own adversities … and we can try to turn those adversities into opportunities.”
The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran joins Amnesty International, United4Iran, Education Under Fire, The Boroumand Foundation, Iran Human Rights Documentation Center, the Baha’i national communities of the United States and Canada, and other organizations in supporting these new Angels of Iran videos and the DRIVE TO 25 initiative calling for action to end the violations of human rights in Iran.
