Mother of Slain Blogger Sattar Beheshti Speaks Out

Iranian blogger Sattar Beheshti was arrested on October 30, 2012 by the Iranian cyber police. Sattar died in custody, allegedly from severe torture. His family was informed of his death one week later, on November 6. Gohar Eshghi, Sattar's mother, recorded this message in her son's memory for the Persian New Year in March 2013.

Note: At 3:45 and 3:49 the word "Rigi" is mistakenly translated as sand. Ms. Eshghi was actually referring to Abdolmalek Rigi, the late head of Baluch separatist group Jundallah.

What Tavaana Students Have to Say

I had been using the Internet for years, but my friends and I never knew about its various aspects and risks. Our only form of protection was using pirated antivirus software. After these five lessons, however, my viewpoint has been totally transformed. These courses save lives and spare people from torture and imprisonment. This and your other courses spread the seeds of hope and knowledge in our country.
