Kareem Amer: Flood the Jail with Mail!

March 29, 2008

Below text emailed by the Free Karim Editor


Dear friends and fellow supporters of Kareem Amer,

The Free Kareem Coalition, in collaboration with the Committee to Protect Bloggers, are holding a new campaign called “Flood the Jail with Mail!” (taking place from April 7th-21st) aimed to get as many people as possible to send Kareem letters of support so that he can remain hopeful and in high spirits.

Kareem has spent over one year in prison, with no sign of his freedom yet. This past November, he was tortured by both prison inmates and guards while being asked to repent for holding certain beliefs. This is unacceptable. We cannot go on referring to Egypt as a democratic or modern state for as long as Kareem is still in prison. This unjust crime of imprisoning him has to be corrected immediately as it’s a serious abuse against the freedom of speech clause which Egypt constantly claims to adhere to.

We still await his unconditional release, and are continuing to do our best to secure his freedom.

But while we do that, we have to make sure that Kareem knows that we are all thinking about him. And for this purpose, we have launched a new campaign:


Please read the details here. It has all the details that you would require in order to pariticpate in this campaign, which will soon be joined by Reporters Without Borders and any other organization interested in making this initative as successful and effective as possible.
