Iran's 2009 presidential election, took place against a backdrop of discrimination,  worsening repression of dissent and violent unrest.  Amnesty International continues to document serious human rights violations including detention of human rights defenders and other prisoners of conscience, unfair trials, torture and  mistreatment in detention, deaths in custody and the application of the death penalty.
 
To increase public awareness of the gravity of Human Rights situation in Iran, Amnesty International & BIC are sponsoring a series of lectures  & films on the first Sunday of the month starting from May, 2010 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
