Demanding a Public Trial for Narges Mohammadi, a Trial Where Witnesses Can Narrate and People Can Judge

Sexual assault and harassment, in any form, can be used as a devastating tool against anyone deemed an ’other’ by certain political regimes, as contemporary Iranian history testifies to such horrific use. In the 1980s and during the Kahrizak tragedy, even some responsible officials of the Islamic Republic at the time admitted to the sexual abuse of prisoners and detainees.

On the other hand, it has never been seen that the commanders and perpetrators of such human tragedies are tried before the Iranian nation, while the narrators and exponents of sexual harassment have always been tried and punished. The punishment of the narrators itself indicates a will to silence all those who are victims and survivors of this type of repression, and certainly, an unknown number have not spoken out for this very reason. It also indicates the lack of independence of the judicial system in the Islamic Republic.

Narges Mohammadi, a human rights activist, has been sentenced three times in court solely for narrating harassment, and now for the fourth time, she is being tried again on June 8, 2024, for the same reason.

We believe that sexual assault, rape, and harassment are tools of torture, threats, and coerced confessions in the hands of a government trying to push back popular protest movements and confine the protesters to their homes.

We will continue narrating, seeking justice, and supporting the victims.

We will stop sexual assault and harassment.

You too can join us in stopping any sexual harassment by the government against protesters by signing.
