Actress Soheila Golestani and Theatre Director Hamid Pourazari Arrested

Recently, security forces arrested actress Soheila Golestani and theatre Director Hamid Pourazari.

A few days ago, they and several other artists published a video in which they appear in front of the camera and women artists remove their headscarves to show their support for freedom and recent nationwide protests.

Their whereabouts are still unknown.

Since the outbreak of nationwide protests, about 18200 people, including journalists, lawyers, teachers, students and civil rights activists, have been arrested. For more details and statistics on the nationwide protest across Iran, read HRANA’s comprehensive report here.
