“Media Fast” for Mojtaba

Committee to Protect Bloggers is organizing a “Media Fast” today to call attention to Mojtaba Saminejad’s hunger strike. Mojtaba, an Iranian blogger, was arrested in November 2004 for reporting on the arrest of three Iranian bloggers – he’s being held at Tehran’s Gohar Dashat prison, which has a bad reputation for abusing detainees.

CPB is encouraging bloggers to fast in solidarity, or, at least to call attention to Mojtaba’s situation and strike. They’ve got more information on Mojtaba’s arrest and a page about the strike and the Media Fast.
