Change for Equality: Farnaz Kamali, Campaign activist, was released at 11pm on March 8, 2011 from Evin prison on bail in the amount of 300 Million Tomans (roughly $300,000). The charges against Farnaz Kamali are membership in the One Million Signatures Campaign, actions against national security, membership in the Campaign to Free Atefeh Nabavi, and participation in protests.

Farnaz Kamali is a student of political science at Azad University in Tehran. She was arrested along with Saeed Asgari, also a student at Azad University, on February 20, during protests. They were arrested near 16th Azar Street and transferred to Evin prison. Their arrest was violent and included beatings by security forces.

It should be noted that security officials had warned Kamali’s family not publicize her arrest. Farnaz Kamali was also arrested once before last June, during protests that followed the disputed presidential elections.
