Nasrin Sotoudeh who has been on hunger strike since October 17, her frailty is worrying her family and activists
Jafar Panahi, the other winner of this year’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, also met with Sotoudeh’s family and wrote about his worries on Facebook:
“Still not feeling well from last night, can’t take the image of Nasrin’s son Nima’s face out of my mind. So full of bitterness and sadness at the same time and so far from a childhood years yet again only a child. I was thinking to myself even if Nasrin was guilty, which she is not, what is Nima’s crime? What will become of our future? What will be the fate of this generation? The generation that has been belittled and put down, the generation that has so much haltered all these years, what will they do in the future? I am terrified to even think about it.
