On January 9, 2010, Iranian police arrested 33 mothers of young adults who were killed in the protests; these women were demonstrating peacefully in memory of their children. With growing reports of violence and rape in Iranian prisons as a retaliation against female protestors, the world needs to see, reflect and act on behalf of the people of Iran.
