CPJ will be collecting signatures until midnight tonight on a Facebook petition in support of Roxana Saberi, an American journalist who is being held without charge at Tehran's Evin prison.

As colleagues, we will take all the necessary steps for the safe release of Roxana Saberi.

Please release Roxana Saberi without delay.

Thank you to CPJ for taking the lead on the petition!

Let's not allow this to fade from national attention. Please keep up the e-mails and the office talk, if not the blogging and stories about Roxana.

All that trouble for getting caught with a bottle of wine.

Please release Roxana Saberu,

Please release Roxana Saberi without delay. It is important to let the truth be told.

Please release journalist Roxana Saberu.

No journalist should be imprisoned for doing his or her job. Free Roxana Saberi...

This women who was doing her job, Which is to obtain information for the American public and the public abroad,was imprisioned?" That is not breaking the law in America and other countries. According to news outlets for Iran all she did was FILE reports from other international news outlets. Which make me believe they were only filed not made public. So why was this women who was doing her job, imprisioned?" She obvuiosly does not have the files or access to them, so let her go. AND what do those files contain?"

Free Roxana today!

To arrest someone for doing their job is atrocious. Please release Roxana Saberi; the truth is important.

Please release my former co-worker. She does not deserve this type of treatment. Roxana hasn't a mean bone in her body nor a curt word for any of her fellow human beings.
You are in my prayers.

Please release Roxana Saberi tody.
