Free Taraneh Alidoosti

Open Letter

#FreeTaranehAlidoosti #WomenLifeFreedom

As members of the international arts community, we demand the immediate release of Academy Award-winning actress, mother and activist Taraneh Alidoosti, who was arrested on 17 December 2022 and has been taken into custody at Evin prison, Iran, where many other political prisoners also remain.

Taraneh was arrested for her condemnation on Instagram of the execution of Mohsen Shekari, the first protester receiving a death sentence since nationwide protests following the brutal police murder of Kurdish-Iranian woman Mahsa Amini began in September.

One of Iran’s most celebrated actors and a vocal supporter of women’s rights, Taraneh is the latest public figure being targeted for supporting the #WomenLifeFreedom movement. Before her Instagram account of 8 million followers was shut down, she wrote: “I’ve inherited this courage from the women of my land, who for years have been living their lives, every day with resistance … I will stay, I will not quit, I will stand with the families of the prisoners and murdered and demand their rights.”

The Iranian authorities have strategically chosen to arrest Taraneh before Christmas to ensure her international peers would be distracted. But we are not distracted. We are outraged. Taraneh Alidoosti, like all citizens of Iran, has a right to freedom of expression, freedom of association, and freedom from arbitrary arrest and detention. We hereby stand in solidarity with her and demand her immediate release and safe return to her family.

The organisers of this letter ask that you be vocal online to show your support using the hashtag #freetaranehalidoosti and contact your local representative.

  10. Free Taraneh, free Iranian women, men. Stop the death penalty.


  11. Please free her now! Iran needs to stop with excusions, torture, raping and killing of innocent protesters! Its barbaric! It has to stop!


  12. Not that the ignorant and ruthless dictators of Iran would ever heed a collection of global signatories, but for what it’s worth maybe this serves to remind their accessories to think twice before abetting the mullahs’ tyrannical rule


  13. Please be Iranian peoples voice.
