Iranian prisoners resort to hunger-strikes

At least 8 Iranian political prisoners are on “life-threatening hunger-strikes” to “demand better conditions and reviews of their unjust sentences”. One prisoner is feared to have dies from his hunger strike. Each one of these prisoners is in jail for political reasons only. The regime isn’t flinching: not only is the regime ignoring these demands, they have, in some cases, punished the prisoners for protesting in such a manner.
