Not exciting enough to write about.

The prison terms being handed out to protesters are not exciting and sexy enough to make it to the papers, but it breaks my heart to think about students, in their twenties, having to spend a decade or more in jail. Often while enduring physical and mental abuse.

Here’s a small selection of prison terms handed out:

Ziaoldin Nabavi / Student / 15 years + 75 lashes

Majid Tavakoli (of headscarf fame) / Student / 8 years and 6 months

Majid Dari / Student / 11 years

Luckily we don’t need to worry about such deviants. Many are being locked up, others are being killed. And the next generation of students will be brought up using state-of-the-art mind control methods:

Happy days.
