Ebtisam is free, the rest still need you

 

Dear Amb. Dr. Haissam,

We’re delighted to let you know that online actions by Amnesty Supporters contributed to the release of Bahraini human rights defender Ebtisam al Saegh, last week. She said, “Thank you… I was aware of your support and this brought me joy and a feeling of safety which is so important to all prisoners”.

In the face of injustice we can sometimes lose hope, but Ebtisam’s release is just one example of the power you, as Amnesty supporters and members, have in shaping the future of human rights in your region.

Like Ebtisam, Nabeel Rajab, another brave Bahraini voice, has been detained since June 2016. During this time he spent over nine months in solitary confinement, which amounts to torture. His next trial hearing is scheduled for TODAY. If convicted, Nabeel Rajab faces up to 15 years in jail.

You still have time to take action and call on the Bahrain authorities to release Nabeel Rajab and drop charges against both him and Ebtisam al-Saegh.

Join your brave voice to theirs

Many thanks,

The Bahrain Team
Amnesty International
