Heshmatollah Tabarzadi

Heshmatollah Tabarzadi

Heshmatollah is an Iranian democratic activist. He served as the leader of the banned opposition group, the Democratic Front of Iran. He was viewed by the government as one of the leaders of the student protests of July 9, 1999 and was arrested and spent nine years in Evin Prison. Following the December 7, 2009 Student Day protests in Iran, Heshmatollah published an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal, writing, "One thing is certain: Dec. 7 proved that the movement for a free, democratic Iran is robust and only growing in strength. If the government continues to opt for violence, there very well may be another revolution in Iran. One side has to step down. And that side is the government—-not the people." 

He has been arrested several times on charges related to his political activities, most recently on September 21, 2022. 10 undercover paramilitary forces seized his son by the door and obliged him to open it. Then they arrested Heshmatollah. He is accused of waging war against God. He has denied all the accusations.

Bodo Ramelow, a German politician who has served as Minister-President of Thuringia has become the political sponsor of #HeshmatollahTabarzadi.
