Iranian student activist Bahareh Hedayat is one of the founding members of One Million Signatures campaign for equal rights in Iran. In April 2010, she was nominated for the 2010 Student Peace Prize by the European Students’ Union. After election protests, she has now been detained and was sentenced to 9 1/2 years in prison.

Release Bahareh Hedayat!!!

December 7, 2009: Here you can see Bahareh Hedayat delivering a message on behalf of Iranian Students to the European Student Union for the occasion of Student Day in Iran:


The Islamic Republic has arrested numerous Iranians in an attempt to silence the post-election protests. The student movement has been a major target of these arrests. Hedayat has denied all the charges and is resisting the pressure to make a false televised confession. Tehran prosecutor Jafar Dolatabadi had personally indicted Bahareh Hedayat during an interrogation session at Tehran’s Evin prison. Hedayat was arrested on December 31, 2009. She is currently being held in ward 209 of Evin Prison and she shares a cell with the detained journalist Leili Farhadpour.

On May 19, 2010, Branch 28 of the Revolutionary Court in Tehran has sentenced Bahareh Hedayat to 9 1/2 years in prison!

According to a RAHANA reporter, Hedayat was given 6 months for insulting the president, 2 years for insulting the Supreme Leader, and 5 years for anti-state and anti-national security actions. A previous 2 year suspended prison issued to her for organizing a gathering in June 2006, has also been added to the new court ruling.
