Committee to Protect Bloggers

Apparently the Committee to Protect Bloggers has asked all bloggers to declare Tuesday Free Mojtaba and Arash Day. Not that I have seen any US press on this issue. But, BBC is reporting on the story: Global Blogger Action Day Called.

Both Arash Sigarchi and Mojtaba Saminejad have been arrested for blogging in Iran. Arash has been sentence to 14 years of jail in Iran.

This is a very interesting organization. It reports regularly on various bloggers who are being arrest, tried and/or convicted for blogging, but mostly from an international perspective. If you want a take on American bloggers who have lost their jobs for blogging, check out List of Fired Bloggers. I believe that the issue of blogging will become hotter and hotter over the next few years, with various governments, business, and other organizations trying to decide what is free speech and what isn't and what is the nature of a blog. Just a non knitting thought!
