World:Journalists behind bars

Share This

Right now, Al Jazeera journalists are suffering in an Egyptian jail for doing nothing more than reporting the news. If we stand up now we can free them and show leaders around the world that we won’t tolerate turning the truth into a crime.

The four journalists face charges of “spreading false news”, a charge that could see them face seven years in prison. Already countries with reporters in jail have spoken out, but with no success and the trial is in days! A large enough public outcry could be the last lever we need to tip the balance and make the cost of holding these journalists too great for Egypt’s faltering government to bear.

Our global call will be delivered to Egyptian embassies around the world and Al Jazeera and Avaaz will help keep the plight of these brave reporters, and many like them across the region, at the top of the news.

  1. It was one of the most eye-opening discussions of a workable theory on why certain cultures come to dominate others after progressing faster. Both books, also, informed me that the Muslim and Chinese cultures used to be the elites in the past while the Europeans were, at one point, the equivalent of the ghetto.
