AN AFTERNOON OF SOLIDARITY, PERFORMANCE AND DEFIANCE

Expressing our determination to step up the fight to free all of Iran’s political prisoners.
Who Is Toomaj Salehi?

Toomaj Salehi is an Iranian rapper beloved by millions in Iran and worldwide because he stands up for, and with, the people. Toomaj is hated by the misogynist mullahs ruling Iran, as he champions the fight against the vicious oppression of women and the whole oppressive system in Iran. Toomaj is a brilliant artist who has defied a brutal system in his songs and videos and participation in protests.

Toomaj Salehi was arrested for his songs and participation in the “Women-Life-Freedom” uprising that shook Iranian society in 2022-23. As women took to the streets in protest, refusing to wear the mandatory hijab face-covering. With men joining this struggle. Toomaj, along with many other political prisoners, has endured months of excruciating torture and solitary confinement. Every 6 hours the Iranian government executes someone!

On April 24, Toomaj was sentenced to death by Iran’s theocrats for his rebel music, for standing up against injustice and for inspiring people worldwide with his courage!
WE CANNOT ALLOW TOOMAJ TO BE EXECUTED!

Toomaj’s courage and conviction as a rebel artist stand in sharp contrast to the degrading art that saturates our culture, that keeps people’s hearts and minds locked within this horrific world. Our choices are not US imperialism and its outpost Israel vs. “dark ages” Islamic fundamentalism. NO! A whole other world is possible...through an all-the-way revolution!
