Free Roxana Saberi

(Copy and pasting alert…give me a break, I’ve had a long day)

Roxana Saberi is an American journalist who has been imprisoned in Iran since late January. She was first arrested for purchasing wine (which is illegal in Iran) and held without charges for over a month. On April 8 she was suddenly charged with espionage and on April 18, based on a closed, one day trial, Ms. Saberi was sentenced to eight years in prison for spying for the United States, a charge the White House denies as “baseless.”

Amnesty International has condemned Ms. Saberi’s conviction and sentencing. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says, “she should be freed immediately.” The evidence against Ms. Saberi has never been made public.

Ms. Saberi is starting her second week of a hunger strike which she plans to continue until she is released. Her family worries for her health and safety. Please sign today to free Roxana Saberi – and urge your friends to sign as well.
