FREE FATEMEH AND MEHDI!
Fatemeh Ekhtesari and Mehdi Musavi, Iranian poets, published writings that were approved by Ministry of Islamic Guidance. Nonetheless, they were tried and convicted of "insulting the sacred." Ekhtesai was sentenced to 11.5 years prison, and Musavi to nine years. They were also sentenced to 99 lashes, for "illegitimate sexual relationship short of adultery" -- shaking hands with a member of the opposite sex.
