20 Year Old Iranian Artist on Death Row

Ms. Delara Darabi, a 20 year old artist is one of the 28 child offenders waiting to die in Iran.  The crime that she is said to have committed happened when she was 17. 

For more information:

Ms. Darabi’s innocence is irrelevant, executing children is disgraceful and barbaric.  In 2006, Iran and Pakistan both executed child offenders.  Since 1990, the list grows, and includes China and the United States (who is the only western nation, and still has not implemented a blanket ban on such archaic behaviour), among others.
