Protecting bloggers across the world

The Committee to Protect Bloggers is currently running a campaign to free two Iranian bloggers jailed for the words they thought and wrote on their blogs. To support the campaign to free Arash Sigarchi and Motjaba Saminejad, check out the CtPB blog. Whilst a dedicated day to campaign focuses attention, the struggle goes on and we must never underestimate how privileged and fragile the freedom to blog can be.
Please write to your government officials, the Iranian officials in your country and to the President and Minister of Justice themselves. There is contact information available here, here and here. Here is a good primer on how to write letters to government officials courtesy of Amnesty International.
