We are launching the hashtag #Where_Is_Mahmonir? as a rallying call for information on the whereabouts of Mahmonir Molaei-Rad, the mother of Kian Pirfalak, a nine-year-old boy who was killed by security forces during nationwide protests last year. On June 11 this year, which would have marked the boy’s 10th birthday, gunfire from government forces also killed Pouya Molaei-Rad, Mahmonir’s 21-year-old cousin, near the cemetery where Kian is laid to rest. Security institutions interrogated Mahmonir after Pouya's death and conditioned the hand-over of his body to the family to her silence.
