For My Friend Maryam, Imprisoned but Free

Wednesday 2 January 2008

I am not sure what crime Maryam has committed to justify her arrest. It is not that I don’t know, but it is difficult to believe that my good friend and former colleague, a journalist, a sweet, innocent and loveable girl, is now in prison. Her only crime is being a woman’s rights activist!! But today she is in Evin prison. My dear Maryam, even if the whole world testifies that women’s rights activities and your efforts to achieve equality for women constitute propaganda against the state, I will not believe them. I pray for your freedom, and I know that god will not abandon you in these dark days. Maryam will be missed by all those who are free at heart.
