Ali Saremi Presente !!!



If you burn my body and sew it to a pole,
Can you steal love for the motherland from my soul?

Even if during my lifetime, including my 23 years of imprisonment, I was not able to pay my dues to God,
to my people and to my country, maybe my execution
will wake people up.

To the people and my country, I shout out again:

“For the motherland, I sacrifice my body… Long live Iran”

Political prisoner, Ali Saremi
