Iranian hunger striker sows lips and is ready to die

Saeed Shirzad is a political prisoner who was arrested and convicted to 5 years in jail for “assembly and collusion against national security” for helping the children of political prisoners pursue education. He was appalled by the conditions in jail and demanded proper sanitation and nutrition as well as the right to communicate with loved ones. When his demands were not met, he sowed his lips shut and since then, has been on a hunger strike since December 8th. Shirzad has reached a critical stage in his hunger strike but has made up his mind to not give up and to “go all the way”.
