Notations From the Grid (Special Weekly Edition): On Human Rights

It is the eve of 9/11 Week here in the United States.    It is a week to remember and be thankful for all the blessing of Freedom and Democracy.    We wanted to report on this we received on the State of Human Rights in Iran as we will be assessing it further in our Perspectives Property This Week:

Iran: 111 Years Imprisonment for 7 Workers' Rights Activists

Iran Human Rights (IHR), September 8, 2019: Seven workers and workers rights activists have been sentenced to a sum of 111 years of imprisonment and 74 lashes.
Iran Human Rights (IHR) once again urges the international community to react to the Iranian authorities' intensified crackdown of the civil society and human rights defenders in recent months. “It seems the Islamic Republic are taking disadvantage of the tension in the Persian Gulf and Hormuz Strait to increase their oppression of Iranian people who are struggling for their fundamental rights,” IHR director Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam said, “once again, we urge the international community, especially European countries, to put the human rights of the Iranian people on top of the agenda in their talks with Iranian authorities.”

Story continues after the photo.
The sentences against the seven workers' rights activists were announced by the Iranian Judiciary yesterday.
Branch 28 of Tehran Revolutionary Courts, sentenced trade unionist Esmaeil Bakhshi to a sum of 14 years imprisonment. Esmaeil Bakhshi is a member of the independent Workers Union of Haft Tappeh Sugarcane Agro Industrial Company. Judge Mohammad Moghiseh sentenced Esmaeil to 7 years for “gathering and conspiracy against the system”, 2 years for “spreading lies”, two years for “insulting the Supreme Leader”, one and a half year for “disrupting public order” and one year plus 74 lashes for “spreading propaganda against the system.”
Worker rights activist Sepideh Gholian has been sentenced to 7 years for “gathering and conspiracy against the system”, 7 years for being a member of Gaam Group (Gaam Magazine), two and a half years for “spreading lies”, one year and a half for “spreading propaganda against the system.”
Amir Amirgholi, Amirhossein Mohammadifar, Sanaz Allahyari and Asal Mohammadi, each has been sentenced to 7 years for being a member of Gaam Group (Gaam Magazine), two and a half years for “spreading lies”, and one year and a half for “propaganda against the system.”
According to article 134 of the Iranian Islamic Penal Code, only the longest term -in this case, 7 years- should be applied.
Moreover, a worker of Haft Tappeh Sugarcane Agro Industrial Company has been sentenced to six years of imprisonment, including five years for “gathering and conspiracy against the system” and one year for “propaganda against the system.”
According to article 134 of the Iranian Islamic Penal Code, only the longest term -in this case, 5 years- should be applied.
Following the popular objections all over the Iranian social media, the head of Iranian Judiciary, Ebrahim Raeisi, promised a fair review of the cases in the court of appeal.
IHR had recently warned about a new wave of repression in Iran.
