The Rape of Taraneh: Prison Abuse of Iran's Protesters
international | gender and sexuality | other press Monday July 20, 2009 10:45 by Lillian Hellman
This is the story of the rape and murder of another young Iranian who was protesting for justice. Full story at link.
Taraneh's is not the first allegation of brutal raping of a post-election protester -- according to the UK Guardian, an 18 year old boy in Shiraz was repeatedly gang raped by prison officials while in detention after being arrested for participating in the protests on June 15. That boy's father won't let him back in the family home.

Horrible. I wish people here would wake up as to the nature of the Iranian regime.
(email I got from Hands Of the People of Iran); There will be an International day of Solidarity with Iran on 25 July. HOPI will have a stall at the Central Bank Dame Street Dublin 2 from 2 pm on Saturday 25 July. They will have leaflets, petitions etc. Please attend even if only for a short while.
The rape allegations are corroborated in the link below to the extraordinary story of one man’s courage , as reported in the CSM last week . Reza Kahlili (not his real name),who worked under cover in Iran's Revolutionary Guards starting in the 1980s , writes that the rape tactics of the Iranian thugocracy are not new :
“The brutal killing of Iranians by their leaders that we're seeing today is nothing new. Ruling clerics have been killing political opponents, along with their families and friends, for 30 years – but inside prison walls.
I've been inside those walls and I've seen teenage girls who were raped before execution so they were no longer virgins and therefore, according to their Islamic beliefs, couldn't go to heaven.”
