Amnesty International & Music Band Kiosk Launch Campaign To Free Artists Jailed In Iran
Amnesty International and renowned Iranian music band Kiosk are calling on artists and members of the public around the world to join a #FreeArtists campaign to raise awareness about the crackdown on artists, including musicians and filmmakers, in Iran. The crackdown, which has led to harsh prison terms and flogging sentences against artists, lays bare the absurdity of Iran’s criminal justice system: artists are being branded as criminals merely for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression through art, including music and film.
