14 Mordad


Not to incite any more Al-Qaeda accusations, but I’ve renamed my blog for one day to show some solidarity with Iranian student activists (some of whom are bloggers) who have been imprisoned and are suffering abuses there. As Global Voices explains, “The idea for the campaign is to rename as many blogs as possible to ‘August the 5th’ (14th of Mordad in the Iranian calendar).” Read the whole thing for more details.

    I like Global Voices, too.
