Journalism in Iran is a dangerous, and often life-threatening, profession. Since the start of modern media and Iran’s Constitutional Revolution in 1905, Iranian governments have systematically intimidated, imprisoned, tortured and killed journalists.

Iran has been ranked among the world’s top press jailers since the start of the Green Movement in 2009. The following is a partial list of journalists and bloggers who have been imprisoned since 2009. Our goal is to compile a comprehensive list and biographies of all journalists who have been jailed since 1905. We know this is an ambitious plan. Please help us complete the Wall of Shame by contacting [email protected]
