Potentially the first Google Plus user to be arrested for free-speech related issues. Good luck, +Anas Maarawi .
On July 1, my friend +Anas Maarawi was arrested in Damascus. Anas is a great blogger and the founder of the only Arabic platform specializing in the Android OS (http://ardroid.com). Anas and I had worked together previously fighting against the US Dept. of Commerce's export controls that restrict ordinary Syrian citizens from accessing important tools. Some of you may have met Anas earlier this year at the Al Jazeera Media Forum, where he spoke on the bloggers' panel.

His friends have set up a campaign (in Arabic and English). There is also a Facebook campaign (http://goo.gl/KhU3e).
