Some of you probably know about the ex political prisoners from 1980 have organized a wide spread hunger strikes around the world in opposition to the Islamic Republic of Iran. However, they have also taken a clear distance from the UN hunger strike that is arranged by Akbar Ganji, a former member of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) and a member of Ministry of Intelligence and Securty of the IRI in 1980.
The following is the ex political prisoners Manifesto which is welcommed and signed by a great number of organizations and well known activists including Noam Chomsky.
In exposure to Ganji's attempt I compilied 2 writings in recent days that I attach a link to them at the end of this message.
I would like to express my strong support for your hunger strike and other actions protesting the criminal repression in Iran, and my hope that your principled and courageous efforts will help bring freedom and justice to Iran and an end to harsh authoritarian rule.

Against the new wave of attacks and oppression in Iran
Courageous people of Iran and All Freedom lovers around the world!!
The recent massive demonstrations by millions of people in most of the Iranian cities, was a manifestation of power by a nation challenging the continuous repression, ruthlessness and demagogy of this regime. This challenge was brutally attacked by anti democratic Islamic regime and its security forces. It is certain by now that tens of people have been killed and hundreds wounded. We have received reports of arrests and disappearances of thousands of activists and dissidents of Islamic republic regime. Among these, student dormitories were the first targets. Massive waves of night time raids of homes leading to arrests of many youths, journalists, students and disappearance of many, for us, is reminiscence of the 80’s fear and horror.
Massive detainees are kept in known prisons such as Evin, Gohardasht and in military posts, Basiji Centers and unknown detention locations.
In spite of extreme censorship, received reports, pictures and video clips are undeniable evidences that the widespread torture, atrocities and brutality of the regime has reached unbelievable dimensions. Assault and battery, unbearable physical and mental torture, has added more than ever, to the hefty record of Islamic republic’s violation of human rights.
The famous tactic of creating fear amongst people, continuous and deteriorating torture for forced and televised confessions, is a crime committed by the regime in a large scale fashion.
Prisoners are constantly, day and night, tortured in order to submit and coercively recant everything they believe in and stand for.
We declare that forced and dictated confessions are not credible and are only a solid proof that Islamic republic regime is taking these confessions under extreme pressure and torture.
Detainee’s families have no resources to pursue the fate of their loved ones. Horrifying news implying the killing and secret burial of the detainees has added to the anxiety of the families and has created a widespread fear and panic in the society.
Efforts by mothers of detainees in search of their children, by gathering in front of detention centers have resulted in arrest of family members. Street killings and kidnapping at the moment is the agenda of the regime’s security forces.
We fear the systematic and widespread executions. They are suppressing the assertive opposition activists brutally, organized and systematically, a procedure that without a widespread objection, both in Iran and around the world, could result in a mass murder by this regime.
Some of the signatories of this manifesto are former political prisoners who have experienced torture and imprisonment in 80’s decade. Many of which have survived and witnessed the mass executions of 1981 and 1988 (1360 and 1367) and therefore, believe that crack down, torture and massacre committed by this regime is far more than what is being reported to the public arena.
In this regard, we demand for urgent, vast and widespread protests against the situation of prisons and torture chambers of Iran. We hope that the international and Iranian Diasporas’ efforts reflect this sensitive situation.
We also warn the United Nations and the International Red Cross of another crime against humanity and demand them to use all their venues to stop the occurrence of another massacre and to visit all known and secret prisons of Islamic Republic and do not hesitate to use all their resources to save the prisoners lives.
-We demand the unconditional release of all political prisoners and abolition of all kinds of torture in prisons.
-We demand the unconditional abolition of capital punishment in Iran.
To all freedom lovers!!
We, the former political prisoners of Islamic Republic of Iran, in support of freedom loving people of our country and to call for freedom of all political prisoners, especially those arrested in recent uprising, and to prevent another massacre in Iran, on July 24th and 25th will go on hunger strike in Berlin (Brandenburger Tor). We ask all political activists, organizations, and institutions in defence of human rights and all freedom lovers, to participate in this hunger strike and take a small step towards prevention of another mass murder in Iran.
