Âzâdy, âzâdy, âzâdiyeh ....Mohammadi, Tâheri, Boroujerdi, Hedayat, Kabudvand, Sedighi and many more names of political prisoners or prisoners of conscience in Iran could be heard in the streets of Hamburg. These were calls for freedom for all political prisoners in Iran. Leaflets in German language informed the many passers-by close to the mayors house in Hamburg about the intensive human rights violations in Iran. The activists sang the famous Sa'adi poetry about the real nature of human beings, promising to continue their demonstrations.
Bàni âdam azâye yekdigarand
Ke dar âfarinesh ze yek goharand
Cho ozvi be dard âvarad roozegâr
Degar ozvohâ ra namânad gharâr
To kaz mehnate digarân bi ghami
Nashâyad ke nâmat nahand âdami.
Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you've no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain! -
