Since I am a writer and humanist, the issues of free speech and human rights are very important to me, which is why you will notice a new addition to my sidebar. February 11th is Victory of the Revolution Day in Iran, which celebrates “liberty, independence, and freedom,” according to Amnesty International. Ironically, the days leading up to that celebration may be marked with an increased crackdown on those felt responsible for the protests over last year’s presidential election. In addition, other dissidents may be executed.
For anyone who wishes to post this badge on their website, Facebook page, or Twitter account on that day (or earlier, as I have done), or wants to see other ways in which he or she can help, you can go to this website: http://www.amnestyusa.org/all-countries/iran/unite-for-human-rights-in-iran-on-february-11th/page.do?id=1011702
My next post will be launching a new feature on my blog, which I’m quite excited about, though it will involve much research on my part, and also involve a thorough searching of my memory banks.
