    In a letter addressed to the nation of Iran, the Grand Ayatollahs, the authorities of the Islamic Republic of Iran and [IMG]Human Rights Organizations across the globe, the female political prisoners transferred a week ago from Rajai Shahr prison in the city of Karaj, to Gharchak prison in Varamin [industrial city in the outskirts of Tehran], provide a harrowing account of the dire conditions at Gharchak, vowing to launch a hunger strike, protesting the violation of their rights.

    It is worth mentioning that the families of these female political prisoners, also recently wrote a letter addressed to Dr. Mohammad Hassan Ziaeefar, the Head of the Iranian Islamic Human Rights Commission entitled: “Gharchak Prison in Varamin a Humanitarian Disaster Waiting to Unfold” demanding immediate attention to the dire condition of their loved ones behind bars.

    Furthermore, incarcerated student Zia Nabavi, also wrote a letter last week addressed to Mohammad Javad Ardeshir Larijani, the Head of the Human Rights Council for Iran’s Judiciary about the inhumane conditions at Karun prison entitled “This is Karun Prison Where the Lines Between Humanity and Barbarity are Blurred…”. A few days after Nabavi’s letter was published, Nabavi and 25 other political prisoners were reportedly transferred from Karun prison to a prison with much better conditions called “Ordugah Klinik”.

    The full content of the letter written by the female political prisoners in Gharchak Prison in Varamin is as follows:
