She said that her son was denied a lawyer and that he was an artist, not an anarchist, and she appealed to human rights organizations, "People, I am a mother with an aching heart." She asked where in the world a person is executed for burning a garbage can.
Mother of Saman Seydi: "Hello, people. I am the mother of Saman Seydi, also known as Yasin. My son was sentences to death. For God's sake, support him.
"My son was denied seeing a lawyer. I ask the people, the human rights [organizations], everybody, to help my son. Help me.
"Where in the world have you seen that over [burning] a garbage can, they can take away the life of a dear person? My son is an artist, he is not an anarchist.
"People, I am a mother with an aching heart. For God's sake, help me, so that my son is not hanged, not executed.
"People, this is a cry [for help]. For God's sake, help me. I am not eloquent and my cry reached nowhere. I am a bereaved mother. Help me, people."
