Simple Ways to Help Iranian Free Speech

Standard

Announcement copied from ReunifyGally:

Whether we agree or disagree with any given Iranian citizen, they ought to have the right to express their views. Here are simple ways you can help them defeat attempts at censorship in Iran:

1. Do you twitter? Change your twitter setting to GMT +3:30 (Tehran time) and your location to any city in Iran. If all of us are Iranians then it is a little harder for government censors to track down Iranian tweeters. (See list of Iranian cities at http://is.gd/13UCt.)

2. Read a list of a few more simple ideas for how you can help at http://is.gd/13TK4
