Freedom of speech: How to fight with paint

“The 12th imam?” From Artworks by Carl Frederik Waage Beck

Dear friends,
these days something is happening in Iran which hopefully will improve the ability of thousands to speak their mind and express themselves however they see fit.

I am not trying to promote a certain political view here, but when artists, writers and people in general are prohibited from expressing themselves the way they see fit, that is a concern to me.

I encourage you to do what you can to make this change possible:

  • Set your timezone on Twitter to “Tehran” which will make it harder to track the people actually tweeting from Iran.
  • Re-tweet important messages and tweets on the development in Iran.
  • Tweet the following message: “See how you can promote free speech in Iran Pls RT #IranElection”
  • Share this post on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Search for #IranElection on twitter and you will see a live view of the change in progress.

best regards, Carl
