Under den kalde krigen fikk dissidenter i fengsel ganske stor oppmerksomhet i vestlige medier. Hva kan det komme av at vi bryr oss så lite om de iranske? Deres skjebne er minst like rystende:

Bahareh Hedayat is a human rights activist who has spent over six years in an Iranian prison for «insulting» Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and for «actions against national security, propagation of falsehoods, mutiny and illegal congregation.» Hedayat is the longest serving female prisoner of conscience in Iran. gatestone.org.
