Hi Mahdi,

> I think the issue
>> is political (without the role of technology)

I disagree with your statement that this event is political without
the role of technology. My email was sent to this list, because of the
name: Liberation Technologies.

Are you aware that Iranians are the #1 or #2 blogging community in the
world? How do you expect these voices to be political with the access
to proper technologies? How do you think the news of Mousavi going to
hospital was published on his site????

All using "Liberation Technologies"!!!

Every-time there is a political event in Iran, my contacts and I see
Internet throttle and new fancy ways to block tools by protocol. Sp we
mobilize and organize to over come thees new techniques!!!


All the best,

p.s. Ma Bishomarim
