Many of the math blogs that I read (and you can find in the blogroll) are writing about the plight of Ali Nesin and his Summer School. Apparently, Prof. Nesin was arrested for running his yearly Summer School in Turkey since he was “teaching without permission”! You can even see pictures of black boards behind police tape on Mathematics under the Microscope. A petition was set up to protest and I urge you to sign it!
