Release Ganji! Campaign

14 July 2005

The following is from an email I received last week from a group campaigning for the release of Akbar Ganji from prison:

bq. "We want to invite you to the new web site we have set up, Release Ganji! Campaign (releaseganji.net), to support Akbar Ganji and consolidate our efforts to release him.

bq. "You can use this web site to coordinate your efforts to release Ganji with other activists. You can use the space to communicate news, links and more importantly any public activity. Email us these informations and we will post them regularly here.

bq. "You can also download and use prepared brochures and distribute them among the people where you live and so raise the public awareness of Ganji's critical situation."

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
