In July 2005, President Bush called on Iran to release Mr Ganji "immediately and unconditionally". He was released in March 2006, in poor health as a result of his lengthy hunger strike against prison conditions.

You're welcome, Mr. Ganji. *spit*

Ganji is a moderate Islamist whom to me has never had any value. I have also lost my respect for him a while ago!

i respect ganji very much, the man was imprisoned for 6 years. he is an intelligent and eloquent speaker. but i have heard that he is a 'reformist' and has admiration for khomenie. this is appaling- nevertheless, i still think he is a voice to hear. however, his recent rejection of the 75 million to promote democracy of iran, that is ABSURD. the iranian people need international soliderity and support. i have a cousin right now in evin prison in the political ward, surly that money can be spent on his bail!!!
