Amensty International posted this summation of the injustice that has landed Karim Amer in prison for the next four years. Karim’s ‘crime’ has been speaking out against the policies Hosni Mubarak, the president of Egpyt, and arguing for the expansion of many rights to women.
Criticism of government is a reflex in the United States, especially for CEI, but it’s still a distant hope for many in Egypt and throughout the region.
I’m glad to see that AI is supporting the Free Karim effort. Karim is innocent of any real crime and should be immediately freed. To help Karim, visit the action page at Amnesty.
