We’re happy to report that American-Iranian journalist Roxana Saberi was freed from prison in Iran!

Roxana had been given an eight-year prison sentence on trumped up charges of “espionage” following a brief closed door trial in Tehran last month.  Amnesty International had issued an urgent action calling for her release.  Over 26,000 messages were sent by Amnesty activists to the Iranian government demanding her release.

Thanks to all who took action with us.  While Roxana may be free, there are still countless other prisoners of conscience languishing in prison cells around the world.  Please take a moment to take action on their behalf so they can join Roxana in freedom.

  3. I have seen the news on BBC web site a moment ago. I could not hold my tears of joy from shedding. Meantime I am thinking how unfair and unjust our judiciary system is. I would like to congradulate her family and herself.
    I wish all the best and happiness for Roxana.
    Kind regards;
