Meeting Akbar Ganji....

I met Akbar Ganji tonight. It took long one hour and half. He was so tired. Many of journalists, politicians, intellectuals, students met him during the last two days. He smiled. “I was thinking about you when I was writing the Second Manifest of Republicanism” Said Ganji to us. He has mentioned about our case two times in his lon article. I and 3 friends of mine were two weeks close to his saloon in the Evin prison. We talked about some common people in Evin prison who we knew them like some jailers. Ganji believes when somebody talk about his period in the detention, can provide himself a good protection. “I have told to the other political prisoners to talk about the situation that they had publicly but some of them have not accepted”. He gave us an advice to talk about all that happened for us in details for the people. “it is not effective to talk about the details to the high rank politicians or the governmental clerics. It is important to talk with people by media.” We talked about many things. I think he is more radical than he was. That’s the result of prison. There is no curtain for the people who have the experience of the prison here. No one can imagine what happen….I hope to write more about this meeting in the coming days.

i cried the day jimmy carter lost the presidency to ronald reagan ... but, we must remember it was carter who lost iran to the fundmentalist THUGS, by failing to support the shah ...

often in life, we must choose the lesser of two evils ... the SAD case of iran is, obviously in hindsight, one of those times ...
