Iranian Student who escaped Iran needs our help

We first met in the summer of 2003 when I was reporting on the protests inside of Iran. There were massive demonstrations taking place all over Iran and we hoped that Iran had reached a "tipping point." It was an exciting time and this young man kept us informed. He would risk his life sending me “on the spot reports” about these demonstrations and clashes, which I posted for him.

Iranian intelligence tried to arrest him and he had to go "underground." Fortunately he found a way to escape and is now in a safe country, but needs help paying his attorney to keep him from being sent back to Iran. He doesn't need a lot, but can't work until the legal matters are resolved.

If you can help, please do so here.

He risked his life to help us.
