Mitchell Baker has written a blog post
expressing Mozilla's support for the Internet-based campaign on behalf of Bassel Khartabil, an open source developer who has been detained in Syria. "Mozilla supports efforts to obtain the release of Bassel Khartabil (also known as Bassel Safadi), a valuable contributor to and leader in the technology community. Bassel’s expertise and focus across all aspects of his work has been in support of the development of publicly available, free, open source computer software code and technology.
" In addition to Mozilla work, Khartabil has contributed to Creative Commons, Open Clip Art Library, and several other projects. The campaign centers on a petition and letter-writing drive at freebassel.org
