Prisoner Update

1. There is a report from a source I do not know very well that Batebi is in the Evin Prison Infirmary. The only good news in all of this is that at least he seems to have been located. The bad news is obvious.

2. There has been a round up of a number of other activists, including several Melli Mazhabi members. Expect not to hear about them from the same people who today are pointing fingers at others for supporting Ganji but not Mohammadi.

3. The exploiters of other peoples misery are also using the occasion of Mohammadi's death to malign Iranians who stand in solidarity with the victims of Israel in Palestine and Lebanon. I suppose their claims make sense for those who have a limited supply of compassion and/or whose empathy is only aroused along national and political lines.
