Rally to free Kareem


Hands Across the Middle East Support Alliance and the DC Coalition for Blog Freedom are organizing a rally in support on imprisoned Egyptian blogger Abdel Kareem Soliman on Thursday Jan. 11 2007 at noon. Kudos to them!

As many readers know Kareeem was arrested in November specifically because of his blogging and is one of several Egyptian bloggers arrested in 2006. So if you're in the DC area, lend your support.
