Just a quick post on this subject as I feel this is a very important one. You can read about it in the Committee to Protect Bloggers. Global Voices Online has the translation to English of the article that carried Erraji to jail.

A Facebook group in his support has been set up and an online petition asking for his release is also available here.

More information at Mideast Youth.
