The Last Time I Saw My Father – #ReleaseBahai7Now

May 13, 2017, in Videos > Interview, by

The Last Time I Saw My Father is a video made as a part of the “Not Another Year” campaign, aimed to raise awareness of the nine year anniversary of the unjust imprisonment of the seven Baha’i leaders in Iran.

The video is based on a recent interview with Na’eem Tavakoli who talks about his father Behrouz Tavakoli, one of the seven imprisoned Baha’i leaders. Behrouz Tavakoli and other Baha’is are currently being held in Iranian prisons for nothing more than being a Baha’i. Mr. Tavakoli and six other Baha’i leaders have been in prison for the last 9 years.

For more information about the “Not Another Year” campaign and how you can support it, visit the Baha’i International Community’s website.

You can use the hashtag #‎ReleaseBahai7Now‬ for the campaign, and “Like” the campaign Facebook page here
