Farouz Farzami

This is worth checking out.

I now join in Betsy's heartfelt appeal to bloggers in the blogosphere to rally in condemning Farzami's imprisonment as a dissident (she was subsequently released after 36 days of confinement and interrogation) and to urge officials in Iran not to go forward with her trial.
I have no way of verifying if this story is true, but I do believe that oppression is a tool of the mullahs of Iran, and that the day they are no longer able to use that tool will be a day to celebrate.

Thought: are blogs the new Amnesty International? In its original conception, I mean. If so, more power to them.
