Egypt: Free Hoder

Elijah Zarwan, from Egypt, is lending his voice to the Free Hoder campaign, calling for the release of jailed Iranian blogger Hossein Derakhshan. “Hossein, if you read this when you get out (may it be soon), sorry for calling for the authorities to release you. I know you asked people not to do so. But I can’t sit on my hands while you’re in jail,” he writes.
