1 April is traditionally a day when there can be fun and laughter – known as April Fool’s Day. But 1 April is no laughing matter for Iran’s seven former Baha’i leaders.
For 1 April marks 10,000 days that Iran’s seven former Baha’i leaders have spent in prison between them. Throughout this time they have been deprived of the rights accorded to prisoners under Iran’s own laws and regulations.
In an initiative coordinated by human rights group United4Iran, large images of the seven are being displayed on mobile billboards and in other settings in some 12 major cities around the world.
