Dear organizers of the Grammy Awards,
We're now 2 days away from Grammy awards I want to ask you for a favor.
As you may know, Toomaj Salehi a famous dissident Iranian rapper living in Iran was abducted by the Islamic Republic on October 30th, 2022 during Iran's protest.
It's been 97 days that he's in solitary confinement and facing charges that could carry the death penalty. His situation warrants more attention by the international community.
Toomaj has always been the voice of Iranians - and his protest musics and lyrics have for years highlighted the oppression Iranians are subjected to by the Islamic Republic, and most recently in this uprising.
He is an artist who - like every human being - was merely exercising his inherent right of freedom of speech.
A value held dearly in the U.S..
I respectfully urge you to mention his name on the stage. He deserves Grammys award like Donald Glover for his song "This is America", and not being in prison.
Your voice could save our prominent beloved rapper.https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-63780502.amp
