Another Dying Ayatollah

Last October, I wrote here about the courageous protest of Ayatollah Hossein Kazameini Boroujerdi, which attracted world-wide attention. Thousands of people defended him (or took him as a rallying point around which to show their opposition to the regime).

Now I am told by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzin that one of his supporters, Alireza Arbobi, who was arrested along with Boroujerdi and then released on bail, has been telling anyone who will listen that Boroujerdi has been reduced to a piteous state, and desperately needs medical treatment. For his efforts, Arbobi has been arrested once again.

Perhaps the good folks at Amnesty or others who concern themselves with the victims of tyranny will do something. They certainly should.
