Free Mojtaba and Arash

The Committee to Protect Bloggers has declared today "Free Mojtaba and Arash Day". Arash Sigarchi and Mojtaba Saminejad are Iranian bloggers, who have been jailed for blogging. Today, Arash was given a 14 year jail sentence for charges, according to Reuters, ranging from "espionage to insulting the country's leaders". (A tell-tale sign of a truly repressive country is when exercising free speech is called "espionage".) via Jeff Jarvis
