This morning officials at Evin prison prevented the husbands of Bahareh Hedayat and Mahdieh Golroo from visitng them in prison. The jailed student activists announced their hunger striker after this incident and, according to Mizan Khabar, the reason is because the officials from the visitation department banned Hedayat and Golroo from visitation.

Bahareh Hedayat is a member of the student organization Tahkim Vahdat. She is sentenced to nine 1/2 years in prison. Mahdieh Golroo is a member of the Advocacy Council for the Right to Education. She is sentenced to two years in prison.

Both of them wrote messages from prison for Iranian Student Day (December 7th) addressed to students.

It has been some time now that Bahareh Hedayat and Mahdieh Golroo have been deprived of using the phone or having arrangements made to use the phone. The two jailed student activists are being deprived of contact with their families.
