Free Motjaba and Arash Day

Motjaba and Arash are two Iranian bloggers who have been arrested for simply telling the truth on the internet. Arash Sirachi is to be sentenced today, while Motjaba is currently free on bail. There only crime is speaking out against the Iranian government on their blogs. The Committee to Protect Bloggers has organized today as the international Free Motjaba and Arash Day. I implore bloggers from around the world to do whatever they can to raise awareness about this issue.

Update: 10am - fourteen years, are you kidding me?
