Thinking in public about anything that matters.

Category: COURAGEOUS IRANIANS

Iranians, like Arabs, whether in their countries or outside, risk themselves when they speak out for liberty and free-thinking. I salute them. And may the world listen and take heed of what they have to say.

Akbar Ganji Freed

Akbar Ganji is an Iranian journalist. He wrote a series of articles accusing Iranian Intelligence Ministry agents of killing five pro-reform writers, and as a result he was sentenced to six years of prison, much of that in solitary confinement.

He has served his full six years and is now free. Free and not cowed by his punishment. Akbar Ganji is one of those rare courageous heroes who deserve our admiration and celebration.

Here are a couple of articles revealing Ganji’s enourmous courage and dedication to liberty. If every lover of liberty had this courage, we’d live in a free world.

An Iranian Blogger

This time I salute an Iranian blogger, Azarmehr, living in London. He’s not a witty guy like The Sandmonkey, but he gets the job done.

Here is his front page:

Introduction: “For a democratic secular Iran. For peace and prosperity in the Middle East. This weblog was created to act as a platform for the voice of secular pro-democracy activists in and outside Iran who are struggling against the religious dictatorship of the Islamic clerics in Iran. My favourite quote: ‘Evil only prevails when the good stay silent.’ ”

A few of his articles that I recommend:
