In Iran, these basic freedoms are crimes [infographic]

Normal day-to-day activities for most people around the world can land you in jail in Iran. The regime routinely arrests, tortures and sentences people for perceived threats against its oppressive ideologies under the guise of “assembly and collusion against national security” and “propaganda against the state.”

“Normal states do not violently suppress legitimate protests, jail their own citizens or those of other countries on specious crimes, engage in torture, and impose severe restrictions on basic freedoms,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said.
