Sentenced to death

A journalist from Afghanistan has been sentenced to death for daring to read about women's rights.

I don't normally post about politics or ask people to sign petitions but this issue, this man's life, is too important to ignore.

Please read the article I've linked to below and click on the link at the bottom to sign the petition to try and convince Afghanistan's government to change their minds.
