Iranian bloggers and free speech

Mojtaba Saminejad and Omid Sheikhan are bloggers living in Iran. They are being punished for speaking their minds in blogs.

Read the details of their cases and sign the petitions to help Mojtaba Saminejad and Omid Sheikhan.

I am a firm believer in all peoples right to freedom of speech. Only under very limited and special circumstances do I think speech should be limited e.g. you can’t shout fire in a crowded theater. To stay up to date on internet free speech issues I’ve added a Blog Alert box from The Committee to Protect Bloggers and the EFF’s Blue Ribbon Online Free Speech icon on the sidebar. These items will be automatically updated by the sponsor organizations.
