Audio: Australian interview with Iranian asylum seeker

From JoyFM, Melbourne, Australia

This is a rebroadcast with some updates of an edition of Allegro Non troppo from 2005.

This is the story of a young Iranian man Armin, who fled Iran just after two teenage boys had been publicly hanged for sexual crimes, i.e. they were homosexual. This story has not gone away there are still horrific stories of execution and persecution coming out of Iran, yet despite this we also are hearing amazing stories of people living in a repressive and violent culture but still trying to form their secret community networks.

If player does not load the interview can be downloaded from here (16.4mb MP3).
