Remembering Mahvash Sabet

Mahvash Sabet is a member of the Iranian Baha’i Community, imprisoned for her adherence to and participation in the Baha’i Faith. As a member of what has become known as the Yaran, 7 members of a Baha’i community body, she and many other Baha’is have spent years in Tehran’s Evin Prison because she refuses to recant her faith. In this video Bernadette Hall, a New Zealand poet and non-Baha’i, expresses her thoughts and feelings towards Mahvash and the poem she wrote while in prison.
