Iran has been named the worst nightmare to be a Journalist in 2009. As stated by the Committee to Protect Journalists the number of journalists in jail in Iran rose in February as a relentless media crackdown continues in Iran. Authorities are now holding at least 52 journalists in prison, a third of all those in jail around the world. To show our support to our fellow Iranians back home, The Solidarity Committee to protect the Iranian people’s Will, is holding a night of solidarity with the Iranian Journalists in jail. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Jacki Lyden
  • Robert Dreyfuss
  • Iran Davar Ardalan
  • Fereshteh Ghazi

More details to be announced soon.
