Advocating for Free Speech

May 28, 2024

Keynote speech by Taghi Rahmani, Iranian journalist, political activist, academic, author, freedom of expression advocate and husband of 2023 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Nages Mohammadi.

“Freedom of expression is the gateway to democracy. I personally have been imprisoned for 14 years and in exile for 12 years due to this gateway. My wife, Narges Mohammadi, has been in prison for years due to her civil activities. However, our fate is not unique; it is the shared fate of every Iranian who believes in freedom of expression,” Taghi Rahmani wrote in a comment to World Expression Forum earlier this year.
