AusIran has thoroughly researched and verified all information about this martyr.

Majid Kazemi, a 30-year-old Iranian, became a symbol of defiance and the harsh realities of state repression following his execution by the Iranian government. Arrested in November 2022 for his participation in anti-government protests in Esfahan, Majid’s story is one of courage in the face of an oppressive regime. A spirited individual, Majid was known for his business in crafting copper kitchenware, a testament to his artisan skills and entrepreneurial spirit. His involvement in the protests was driven by a demand for freedom and justice, aligning with the nationwide movement triggered by the tragic death of Mahsa (Zhina) Amini in custody.

Majid’s trial and subsequent execution highlight a deeply troubling disregard for human rights and due process. Alongside two other men, Saleh Mirhashemi and Saeed Yaghoubi, he was subjected to a hasty and grossly unfair trial, culminating in a death sentence under the charge of “enmity against God” (moharebeh). The proceedings bore no resemblance to a fair judicial process, marred by allegations of torture and forced confessions. Reports from informed sources and human rights organizations like Amnesty International paint a harrowing picture of the treatment Majid endured, including being suspended upside down, subjected to mock executions, and coerced into making incriminating statements under extreme duress.

The international community has voiced its horror and condemnation at the execution of Majid Kazemi and his fellow protesters. These actions by the Iranian authorities have been criticized as an attempt to crush dissent and instill fear among those who dare to challenge the status quo. Majid’s story, emblematic of the struggle for freedom and human rights in Iran, calls for a robust response from global actors. His unjust death underlines the urgent need for heightened international scrutiny and action against the use of the death penalty as a tool of political repression. Majid Kazemi’s legacy, a poignant reminder of the cost of fighting for justice, continues to resonate with those who continue the fight for freedom and human dignity.
