How Can I Eat When My Son Isn't?

Majid Tavakoli's ill mother in Shiraz, who has not been able to see her son, since Majid was imprisoned in December, has also gone on hunger strike today. 'What has my son done to deserve this? How can I eat when my loved one isn't eating?'

Two other prominent Iranian student movement leaders, Koohyar Goodarzi and Hossein Ronaghi Molki (aka Babak Khorramdin) are also on hunger strike. Koohyar's condition today meant he had to be taken to the prison clinic.

If only the world media reacted, if only the universities outside Iran showed a strong reaction, it could save Majid, Hossein and Koohyar.
