2011 Letters to Hoder

Write to HoderJune 15th is Write to Hoder Day. You can show support for Hoder and protest his continued imprisonment in Iran by writing a letter to Hoder on your blog or on Facebook. Drop a link to your letter into the update form and it will be added right here to an archive of links and letters.



Project Launch

I started Letters to Hoder upon reading the news that Hossein Derakhshan’s 19.5-year prison sentence had been confirmed by an Iranian court. You can read about Hoder, this project and the thoughts behind it on the About page.

I am slowly adding links of resources for people who would like to know what they might do to try to help Hoder, or who would like to keep abreast of updates as they unfold. I have constructed a basic timeline on the About page, but if you have suggestions for links, please add a comment here.

If you’d like to show your support for Hoder and to help keep up awareness and coverage of his situation, you’re invited to write a letter to Hoder, too – please see here.
