In Luxembourg last Tuesday, some 80 people – including, Baha’is, Christians and Muslims – gathered to show their support for the seven unlawfully imprisoned Baha’i leaders in Iran and to ask for their immediate release.

The meeting was held 14 May at the Baha’i Centre in Luxembourg-City.

“The plight of the seven Baha’i leaders in Iran is emblematic for the Human Rights situation in Iran,” said Jutta Bayani, spokesperson for the Baha’is of Luxembourg. “We are gathered here to demand the immediate release of these innocent friends but also to show our ongoing support for all the victims of human rights abuses in Iran.”

The event also featured readings and a video presentation as well as chanting by children. Children and youth also brought roses bearing the names of the seven imprisoned Baha’i leaders and displayed them in a vase under the portrait of the seven.
