The Committee for Defense of political prisoners: Remember Majid Tavakkoli On His Second Birthday Behind Bars! On May 22 one young man will turn 25. But he will not be able to celebrate his birthday with friends and family as many young men would. Instead, Majid Tavakkoli will be spending his 25th birthday in a dank and fetid cell in one of Iran’s most squalid prisons.
Please join us In Toronto to celebrate student movement symbol's Birthday and show the world that we are strongly support our young activists on the inside, who put their lives in risk for Freedom and Human rights!

This event is organized by the United Student Front in Canada,
the Committee for Defense of Political Prisoners
