A quilt for Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani

Maryam Namazie was the keynote speaker at the Amnesty International Regional Conference held on 19 February 2011 in Salisbury, UK. She spoke on Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, Stoning and Sharia Law to a crowd of over 100. Kate Allen, the AI UK’s director and long-time activists were present at the day-long conference.

Participants made a quilt for Sakineh and vowed to continue campaigning for her release.
