Petition to Save the Life of Amir Nasr-Azadani — Professional Iranian Soccer Player Sentenced to Death

Amir Nasr-Azadani, 26 years-old, is a professional soccer player in Iran who has been sentenced to death for participating in the recent protests sparked by the murder of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, killed while in Iranian police custody.

A petition has been created to try to save his life, which can be signed here.

Nasr-Azadani is just one of an estimated 14,000 people who have been arrested since the protests started about three months ago. Already hundreds have been killed and thousands have been injured by Iranian forces, who fire live rounds into protests.

This regime does not hesitate to impose arbitrary sentences and carry out executions on anyone that opposes them. The regime is confident it can brutalize and murder this uprising into submission. But so far, the protests continue throughout the country, uniting much of the population against the regime.

The rulers in Iran will most certainly not be stopped by petitions. But many in Iran have explained that there is a chance to reduce a person’s sentence by drawing attention to their case and making it highly publicized. This is the goal of this petition: to save the life of Amir Nasr-Azadani.
