I have not seen much in the news about the courageous Akbar Ganji, the Iranian investigative journalist who has been imprisoned for the last 6 years for criticizing the theocrats of the Iranian government.
Since June 11, 2005, Ganji has been on a hunger strike in protest of his unjust imprisonment.
