Heshmat Tabarzadi will return to prison tomorrow
His furlough was brief but left behind an exceptional memory. In the hope that we shall forever keep aflame this torch of home, God protect him.
"Although I know that my presence outside would be to the benefit of the democratic movement, and although I would prefer to be among my family and, in particular, besides my aged and suffering who, however, is both a lioness and kindly, my presence among my imprisoned comrades and in that other stronghold of the struggle, i.e., prison, comforts me, particularly since I know that this latest imprisonment will make it impossible for anyone to put up a pretense in international gatherings and that it be claimed that the human rights situation has been improved with the arrival of Hasan Rouhani. I wanted such an outcome and realize, of course, that historical necessities will force the regime to retreat step by step under current circumstances, but this is a long way off. Under the present circumstances, I am in complete health and as long as special circumstances are not imposed upon me, I will not launch a hunger strike. But if special circumstances should arrive, the responsibility for this will be on Khamenei and the rulers."
