Free Mojtaba and Arash day

by Captain Oates

This entry is dedicated to the two Iranian bloggers Mojtaba Saminejad and Arash Sigarchi, who have been improsoned by the Iranian authorities for doing little more than this - posting views on a Blog.

This is nothing unusual in Iran - the authorities have been shutting down blogs and detaining bloggers for some time now.


The BBC have a page dedicated to the dangers of blogging in Iraq, which can be found here.

The Committee to protect bloggers organised the Free Mojtaba and Arash day.
