White torture

(via @persianbanoo)

My next eight tweets describe psychic torture (white torture) methods used in Iranian prisons:
  • Sleep deprivation for several nights, long term solitary
  • Extreme character assassination, threat of bodily injury, obscenity
  • Giving false news re family arrest or death, mock executions
  • Extreme hot or extreme cold cells, no fresh air for days
  • Food deprivation for days, hence weight loss we have been witnessing
  • Interrogating the prisoner naked and blindfolded with threats of rape
  • Limiting use of bathroom and personal hygiene, causing kidney problem for many prisoner


  1. Hi,

    Thank you for all you are doing for Human Rights. Please let me know how we can help you.

    I thought that you would like to see this latest Documentary entitled: The Story of Human Rights.

    It is an incredible short film (about 10 minutes in length) and was released about a months ago. You can view it at: http://www.humanrights.com/#/what-are-human-rights

    Interestingly enough, if more people knew their 30 Human Rights, as explained in the Universal Delclaration of Human Rights and insisted on their rights, the world would be a far more peaceful and civilized place for all of us.

  2. Sorry! I’m so clumsy with this blogging. Didn’t even notice your comment until today. :( Didn’t have a traking system.
    But listing the 30 human rights could make a good blog post.
    Working on it. :)
