WORKING TOWARDS THE RELEASE OF TWO OTHER IRANIAN BLOGGERS

Rebecca MacKinnon, at her blog RConversation, requests the assistance of fellow bloggers in particpating on February 22nd in a campaign to help free two Iranain bloggers, one still imprisoned and the other released, but still facing charges. As this sounds so like the situation that Iranian blogger-journalist Farouz Farzami finds herself in, I will be pleased to get involved on behalf of Rebecca and others who find merit in bloggers, who are free to post, helping those who, if they do so, may become victims of the repressive tactics of tyrannical regimes. Could there be a better cause?

Hat tip to Rodger Morrow for writing to me to make me aware of Rebecca's post, as he knows how important this whole subject is to me (and he shares in that conviction).
