Berkeley Forum is a group weblog by three talented Iranian students in Berkley University. They write about various interesting issues, specially political issues related to Iran. In a post of this blog on April 21 you can see a short video which is made by Omid Memarian. The video is about Student Government elections campaign on Bekley’s campus.

Omid came to US a year ago as a visiting scholar at Berkeley. He is a talented journalist whose works have been featured in NY Times and SF Chronicle several times. Omid spent several days in jail two years ago along with some other Iranian bloggers. I’m so happy that he was released and he can gradually get over the bad memories of solitary confinement and get more academic background in journalism in US. You can follow up his work through Berkely Forum and his personal English blog Iranian Prospect.
