‘In Iran there are no differences between fundamentalists and reformists’

Shaparak Shajarizadeh is an Iranian activist and co-author of "Freedom is not a crime". She relates how she got “fed up with living a lie” and decided to take off her veil in Iran as an act of civil disobedience. Detained three times, she tells she faced “the most horrible things in the world” during interrogations. She warns about the violation of human rights that have been “worsening” in her country, in spite of the hopes raised by the so-called reformists over the last few years.
