'My friend Razan Ghazawi has been arrested today at the Syrian-Jordanian border. She was on her way to attend a workshop for advocates of press freedoms in the Arab world.
Razan is an indefatigable campaigner for human rights and freedom of expression in her country. She has been advocating for the rights of political prisoners and minorities in Syria and has always fought for the rights of the Palestinians. She is one of the few Syrian bloggers who writes under her real name.

Razan is the most driven, thoughtful and freedom loving person I have ever met. Tonight I’m really worried about my friend and I ask for her immediate release. Please join the #FreeRazan campaign by spreading the word and showing support.
