In its recent crackdown, the Iranian government--specifically the Security Police of the Revolutionary Guard--have once again detained my friend, Kian Tajbakhsh. As most of you know, Kian was one of four Iranian-American scholars detained and released in 2007. Kian is a humanistic and progressive-minded scholar who is not politically active and had chosen to try and stay in his country despite the risks.
The current unstable situation in Iran leaves Kian and all detainees in great danger. His family has asked for people to sign a petition at the web site below and I would appreciate it if you could do that. Please take a moment to sign the petition: http://www.freekian09.org/sign-the-petition/
