A fellow blogger from Portugal who runs the blog Oeiras and Environs Daily and occasionally comments here, alerted me to a blog movement tomorrow on behalf of the people of Iran whose struggle for freedom has caught the world's attention. It seems that a member of the international blogging community is missing and many are concerned about this individual's whereabouts and safety. Here is the URL for that blog: http://tehranlive.org/, which JM has recently left in blog comments.
In solidarity with the people of Iran: I support you in your fight for democracy, freedom and human rights. Fight on.
Here you can read an article about a man named Gene Sharp, whom you may never have heard of, but whose book "From Dictatorship to Democracy" is rumored to have helped topple several dictatorships, including that of Slobodan Milosevic in 2000, through its almost 200 hundred non-violent strategies; some of which have already been adopted by the student movement in Iran. If you're interested in non-violent protest, you'll really like reading this article.
There is some lively political discussion of the situation in Iran at the site of my Iranian blog bud Homeyra. You can read her at Forever Under Construction.
