At years end, Amnesty International was reporting several hundred protestors being slaughtered by security forces in Iran, directly targeted by live ammunition, assassinated in a cool, calculated fashion by the Iranian regime. Now, as we near the conclusion of January 2020, the only people who know how many protestors have been murdered, the exact numbers, more or less, is the regime itself. They are the only ones who know for certain how many have been tortured, are being tortured, and why. We stand in solidarity with them and seek to draw attention to their plight, particularly those who are still alive, the many thousands of protestors (and journalists) languishing in Iranian jails.
