Group Description

Majid Tavakkoli is one of the hundreds of people who have been jailed in Iran for simply exercising their right to freedom of expression. Majid, a student leader, was arrested in December 2009 after speaking at a university rally. He is now serving a term of more than eight years in prison for simply criticizing the government.

Your pictures will be used to create a virtual protest in Azadi Square, calling for the freedom of Majid Tavakkoli and all prisoners of conscience in Iran.

It’s easy to participate. Here’s how:
1.Identify a location to rename Azadi Square. This can be a prominent place in your community, or simply some place close to home, like your front yard.
2. Make a sign, noting that you are in Azadi Square and include some of the suggested slogan. Template signs that you can download and print will be available soon at www.amnestyusa.org/majid. But, feel free to get creative and create your own. Need some inspiration, check out the photos on flickr.
3.Temporarily rename your location Azadi Square. You can do this by simply holding or posting your sign or try to get a more formal proclamation made by your student government or city officials.
4.Take a picture to document this momentous event. The picture can be by yourself or with a large group of people.
5.Upload your pictures and please note city, state, and country. These pictures will be compiled and used to create a virtual protest in Azadi Square, calling for the freedom of Majid Tavakkoli and all prisoners of conscience in Iran.
