    American women are chain-hunger striking in solidarity with Roxana as she ends her 8th day of defiance:

    We are only consuming what Roxana drinks in her Iranian prison cell: sweetened water. We are standing with her and for free speech. We are standing against those who wrongly accused her, tried her behind closed doors in a 1-day hearing, and sentenced her to prison. She has declared that she will not live in prison but “will be freed or die.” We cannot let her go through this alone and we must tell Iranian hardliners, and the entire world, that we will stand with her in defense of western liberty and fundamental human rights.

    This is difficult for those with jobs outside the home and for moms who care for children. However, in comparison to what Roxana went through today, on the 7th day of her hunger strike, it is little to ask. We are still in our homes and enjoy our comforts; we can still speak, think, read, and gather in the manner we choose — without being hauled into a kangaroo court and charged with “spying.” Roxana is an American citizen and her natural right to life and liberty has been violated by a brutal system. It is time to sacrifice a little for our hard won American ideals and time to tell the thugs and bullies of the world that we will stand together in honor of a valiant defender of liberty.

    We have set up a 10-day schedule and will add names in rotation at the point that the ten days have been filled.
