Iran's Akbar Ganji's pictures for SoapBlog Chicago

Some more pictures for SoapBlog Chicago to consider using. This time of Iranian dissident Akbar Ganji.

I've blogged on him here: The Economist on Iran's Akbar Ganji: "a courageous and obdurate man willing to lay down his life on a matter of principle".

The petition to the UN Human Rights Commisionaire, European Parliament, and Iranian Authorities to free him can be found here.

And here is Reporters Without Borders on Ganji: Akbar Ganji goes on hunger strike : "No one should be imprisoned - not even for a second - for expressing an opinion."
