Neda NAJI is a student, who fights for the rights of workers, and an actress. She notably interpreted the role of the Russian anarchist Valentina in a biographical film dedicated to the life of the anarchist Emma Goldman. On May 1, 2019, while participating in a workers' day demonstration with her, she was arrested with 50 other people (including Marzieh AMIRI , Anisha ASADOLLAHI and Atefeh RANGRIZ). Since then, like other companions, she has been detained by the security forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the grim Qarchak Prison (also known as Shahr-e Rey) east of Tehran. ---- According to another (non-political) detainee, Neda NAJI and Atefeh RANGRIZ were beaten on 6 July 2019 for refusing to wear Islamic veil (chador / hijab). As a result of this violent attack, Neda was seriously injured in the head and eyes and Atefeh was injured in the shoulder and legs. At first they were transferred to the prison health service but were returned to their cells without adequate treatment. Jamal AMELI, Neda NAJI's husband, wrote on his Twitter account: "Evin prison officials do not answer the questions of Neda NAJI's family about his condition. Neda and Atefeh are in danger in Qarchak Prison and no one hears our voices. "

In addition, several other people, including Amir Amirgholi, Amir Hossein Mohammadifard and Sanaz Allahiry, who covered the news of the struggles of Iranian workers (including the sugar factory of Haft Tappeh Sugar Cane and Ahvaz steel mill), were also imprisoned. All three began a hunger strike on 4 July 2019.
Esmail BAKHASHI, secretary of the Haft Tappeh Workers' Union in the southwestern province of Khuzestan, who had been released after being brutally tortured was arrested again three weeks after his release for publishing a story of the torture he suffered in prison. He joined in prison Sepideh GHOLIAN, the student journalist who had covered protests by Haft Tappeh workers.
