Day of Journalists
Pedram from eyeranian said:
Some Iranian bloggers have decided to "hang their keyboards" for today (day of journalists) and not write anything in protesting the arrest of their colleagues. Journalists are prosecuted, arrested, tortured and sentenced everyday in Iran for only expressing their opinions. As is the case with Zahra Kazemi, many pay the ultimate price for just merely doing their job. This is why Reporters without borders has called Iran "the biggest prison for journalists in the Middle East ". Let us not forget them and work even harder to bring freedom and democracy to Iran.
