Today is International Day of the Imprisoned Writer. That makes today a perfect time to give you an update on Hossein Derakhshan. He was on the show a few years back, and we've mentioned him several times this season...
He's the Canadian-Iranian blogger sentenced to 19 years in a Tehran prison - for blogging and promoting freedom of speech.
PEN Canada is now focusing on his case.
There are two online petitions you can sign to help free Derakhshan from his (what we think is unfair) sentence.
