Raise Your Voice While You Can

Thanks for the Memory to Jane at Armies of Liberation.

Yesterday I received an email from Jane asking me to sign this petition. Unfortunately, I was out of the office all day, so I didn't get a chance to respond until today. At the time she wrote me, she was aiming for 400 signatures. I'm happy to report that she's far surpassed that number.

Since I've taken up the call to arms with regards to McCain-Feingold's intrusions on our freedom of speech and the press, I feel it behooves me to be consistent and speak out on behalf of this Yemeni journalist. Please read his letter to Jane, then go sign this petition.

I have received a wonderful e-mail from Jane at Armies of Liberation, linking me to some VERY good news!

WE DID IT!!!!!!

Al-Khaiwani has been freed!!!!!!

This is wonderful news, and a very good day for freedom. Thanks to any and all my readers who got involved, as well as my fellow Bloggers. See? You have a voice, and when you use it, YOU WILL BE HEARD!
