: As I mentioned below, Hossein Derakhshan is headed back to Iran, were he started the blog revolution, because he believes the election will cause the regime to behave and not jail and torture him. He’s asking for our help: Donate to help pay for his trip and if he does get detained, Hoder has a list of our responsibilities.
My relationship with Hoder and the Iranian weblog society — and following that, the Iraqi blogging scene and a new world opened up by this medium — began the day before another Iranian blogger and friend of Hoder’s, Sina Motallebi, was arrested in Tehran. Sina credits the attention bloggers brought to his case to his release. So take Hoder’s request seriously.
Hoder promises to report and take videos and pictures… ” if I can find a wi-fi hotspot in jail.”
