Free Iranian Student-Majid Tavakoli!

Join the facebook cause, and spread human rights awareness!
Iranian student, Majid Tavakoli was arrested for protesting and passing around pamphlets against the Iranian government. After retaining him in prison, with the intention to humiliate him, the government took photographs of him dressed as a woman and released these to the public. In response to this action, thousands of Iranian countrymen, dressed in the hajib, the proper dress for women, and took photographs and made them their facebook profile photos, as protest. There is a compiled video of this pacifist action. Check out the articles and video on this controversial issue.
