Four death row Sunni Kurdish political prisoners on hunger strike in Iran

Four Sunni Kurdish political prisoners in Iran went on hunger strike starting Saturday, June 14th, protesting their transfer to Ghezel Hesar Prison in preparation for their execution, recent reports indicate.
Hamed Ahmadi, Kamal Molaei, Jamshid Dehghani and Jahangir Dehghani had previously went on hunger strike for 75 days.
The families of these death row inmates staged a sit-in outside the Ghezel Hesar Prison demanding the revoking of their loved one’s death sentences. In the face of threats made by Iranian regime henchmen they have said they will continue their sit in until their children’s death sentences are annulled.
