ANGELS OF IRAN | A VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS: ROXANA SABERI
The story of Roxanna Saberi s time in prison with Mahvash Sabet and Fariba
Kamalabadi, two of The Yaran ( the Friends ), sentenced to 20 years in prison
simply for helping administer the needs of the Baha i community in Iran.
Featuring journalist Roxana Saberi and Elise Auerbach, Iran Specialist for
Amnesty International USA. Roxana, “I think the lessons that Mahvash and
Fariba taught me in prison are universal. And they can apply to anybody,
anywhere in the world.  You don t have to
be in prison. We have our own prisons, are own adversities, and we can try to
turn those adversities into opportunities.”
