Rally Planned for Journalist Jailed in Iran

A rally in support of Roxana Saberi -- the Iranian-American journalist and Medill School of Journalism alumna convicted of espionage last week in Iran -- will take place Thursday at Northwestern University.

Organized by the University’s Medill Undergraduate Student Advisory Council, the rally will begin at 5:15 p.m. in front of Fisk Hall and end at the Rock, a Northwestern landmark for protests and rallies. At the Rock, John Lavine, dean of Medill, Jack Doppelt, professor of journalism, and others will confirm their support for Saberi and concern for her immediate release.

Saberi, who received a master’s degree from Medill in 1999, is remembered as an outstanding student and journalist.
