Cartoon 80: Raid on Political Prisoners at Evin
On April 17, 2014, more than one hundred guards and intelligence agents raided Evin Prison’s Ward 350, where political prisoners are held, according to a Kaleme website report. Political prisoners were brutally beaten and more than 30 of them sustained serious injuries. Kaleme reported that 32 prisoners were transferred to solitary confinement in the aftermath of the raid. Touka Neyestani’s cartoon reflects on the abuse of defenseless political prisoners.
