The Power of Personalisation
We hear about totalitarian regimes and it kind of washes over us. But when a story like Save Nazanin comes to our attention, it's impossible to ignore.
Nazanin is an 18 year old girl facing severe consequences for killing a man in self-defence. The site features a photo of her so we know this is a person, not a statistic or some faceless foreigner.
The original penalty was death; thankfully, that has now been overturned. But she still faces severe difficulties. This is an opportunity for the blogosphere to show some leadership - some people power.
This post is my tiny attempt to help Nazanin. Visit the site to find out how you can help.
