Free Galal El-Behairy | Egypt

Galal El-Behairy is an Egyptian poet, lyricist, and activist. Throughout his career, Galal has employed his artistic voice as a nonviolent means of reimagining the future in a time of political tumult. Through his work he has brought up sensitive issues about women’s rights, free expression and the efforts of Egyptian citizens to determine their form of government. He is the author of books Chairs Factory (Masna’a El Karasy) published in 2015 and Colorful Prison (Segn Bel Alwan), 2017. He has written many lyrics for the singer Ramy Essam, among them one of his biggest hits Segn Bel Alwan. Most recently he collaborated on the song Balaha and was planning to publish a book of poetry, both of which caused him to be detained, tortured, and imprisoned unjustly for several months awaiting a court indictment. Galal’s poetry is an inspiring representation of the energy and hope of Egyptian citizens and activists in the past decade, from the chants of protesters challenging authoritarian regimes to the lyrics of songs performed during the Arab Spring in 2011 and after. It is also a cautionary tale of the risks artists take within a state that constantly attempts to repress dissenting voices through censorship and imprisonment.

Where is Wang Quanzhang?

 

Help get Wang Quanzhang home to his family

FIVE YEAR OLD QUANQUAN THINKS HIS DAD IS A HERO. BUT HE HASN'T SEEN HIM IN ALMOST THREE YEARS BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN DETAINED BY THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT.

Wang Quanzhang is a human rights lawyer from China who has spent years defending the rights of others - and risking his safety to do it. One day, almost three years ago, he was taken by the Chinese authorities and his family does not know for sure where he is or even if he is alive...

But Quanquan and his mother, Li Wenzu, are trying to save Wang Quanzhang and get him home safely. To mark 1000 days since her husband went missing, Li Wenzu began a 100km march from Beijing to Tianjin where she thinks he might be. Though Li Wenzu was stopped by the authorities, she thinks that the only reason she hasn't suffered from further harassment is because the world is watching.

The Chinese government needs to drop the charges against Wang Quanzhang, and let him go home to his family immediately.

Nasrin Sotoudeh - Iran

Nasrin Sotoudeh (also spelled Sotoodeh; Persian: نسرین ستوده‎) is a human rights lawyer in Iran. She has represented imprisoned Iranian opposition activists and politicians following the disputed June 2009 Iranian presidential elections as well as prisoners sentenced to death for crimes committed when they were minors. Her clients have included journalist Isa Saharkhiz, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, and Heshmat Tabarzadi, the head of the banned opposition group Democratic Front of Iran.

Sotoudeh was arrested in September 2010 on charges of spreading propaganda and conspiring to harm state security[1] and was imprisoned in solitary confinement in Evin Prison. In January 2011, Iranian authorities sentenced Sotoudeh to 11 years in prison, in addition to barring her from practicing law and from leaving the country for 20 years. An appeals court later reduced Sotoudeh's prison sentence to six years, and her ban from working as a lawyer to ten years.
