Golaleh Moradi receives a four-year prison sentence
Conditions of Zeinab Jalalian, Fatemeh Mosanna, and Sofia Sufi raise concern – Day 105 of Iran uprising
On Day 105 of the Iran uprising, December 29, 2022, freedom-loving and brave women and youths turned the funeral and 40-day memorials of their slain heroes in Tehran (Hamidreza Rouhi), Semirom in Fars Province (Ali Abbasi), Marvdasht (Arman Abbasi), Dehgolan (Mohsen Niazi), Qazvin (Mehrdad Malek), and Izeh (Reza Shariati, Sepehr Maghsoudi, and Milad Saeedian) into anti-government demonstrations.
With chants of “Death to Khamenei” and “So many years of crimes, death to the supreme leader,” they renewed their vows with the slain protesters to continue their path to the end. In most protest ceremonies, women and girls actively participated and led the slogans.
The day before, security forces surrounded Tehran’s Behesht-e Zahra cemetery to prevent people from gathering to hold the 40-day memorial of Hamidreza Rouhi. However, on Thursday, December 29, a large crowd converged in Behesht-e Zahra to commemorate Hamidreza and clashed with security forces.
With the progress of the uprising and nationwide protests, the political prisoners who were incarcerated before the recent uprising continue to remain under challenging conditions.

Kurdish sources have reported that during the recent uprising, Zeinab Jalalian was shackled and moved from the women’s ward of the Prison of Yazd to the detention center of the intelligence services. But Zeinab refused to cooperate with them. They have told Zeinab Jalalian that if she collaborates with the Intelligence Ministry, she will be released from prison. But she has continued to resist and remain firm.
