Tag: Atena Daemi

Atena Daemi is an anti-death penalty campaigner and a women’s rights activist imprisoned in Iran for her peaceful activism. She started serving a 7-year-senterce prison term in 2016.
An Iranian appeals court had confirmed Atena Daemi’s new 25-month sentence in September 2019 after a lower court convicted her of disseminating anti-government propaganda and insulting Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The charges arose from her writing an open letter from prison condemning the government’s executions of several political prisoners in September 2018 and her singing a revolutionary anthem to honor those prisoners.
Atena Daemi has been handed a second conviction for engaging in peaceful acts of anti-government protest while in jail.
A court presided over by Judge Amouzadeh in June 2020 convicted Atena Daemi of two charges of spreading anti-government propaganda and disrupting prison order. The court sentenced her to one-year prison terms for each charge plus a punishment of 74 lashes.
