Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran

On the eve of the anniversary of the uprising of the Iranian people, on Thursday June 10, more than 700 prisoners in cellblock 1 in Gohardasht Prison went on a mass hunger strike in protest to group tortures and not being allowed to contact their families.
In the past few days, prison guards attack prisoners on a daily basis beating them with clubs and other tools. As result, a large number of prisoners have sustained injuries and the signs of torture can be seen on their bodies. To keep the torture and other crimes committed against prisoners under wraps, all the communications with their families and outside of prison has been cut off.
The condition of injured prisoners is very poor and they are not taken to the infirmary for treatment to keep other prisoners from finding out about the situation in this cellblock. (Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran – June 10, 2010)
