Meanwhile the remaining Women held in Evin prison have gone on hunger strike. Two apparant reasons for the hunger strike are for the heavy bail money that has been set as well as the women demanding that all of the younger girls be freed.

Signs with slogans such as " Human rights is Womens' rights" and "Free our Friends" were being held.
