Fred Petrossian

I am an Iranian journalist, blogger, and researcher based in Europe. I began my journey with Global Voices in the summer of 2005, using the nicknames ‘Farid Pouya’ and ‘Hamid Tehrani’. I served as the Iran editor at Global Voices from May 2006 to January 2015. Over the years, I have actively contributed to various digital projects, including Digiactive and the March 18 Movement, which received the Think Social award in 2009.
I also co-edited and co-authored the book ‘Hope, Votes, and Bullets,’ which delves into Iran's protest movement and its relationship with social media. For approximately nine years, I held the position of Online Editor-in-Chief at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's Persian service, known as Radio Farda, located in Prague.
