Free Ramin Jahanbegloo

Important dissident Iranian intellectual Ramin Jahanbegloo is in prison in Iran. Just look at the first line of the signatories of the petition to free him organised by L'Esprit: George Steiner, Richard Rorty, Timothy Garton Ash, Edgar Morin, Claude Lefort, Pierre Vidal-Naquet...

His Wikipedia page is keeping fairly up to date on his situation, and there are blogs you can check in with too: Ramin Jahanbegloo, Release Ramin Jahanbegloo, and Antiprison. More links: Eurozine, Open Democracy.

More on Iran: the yellow star story, gays and busdrivers.
