Free Issa from PA arrest!

On Monday September 4, 2017 Issa Amro was arrested by the Palestinian Authority for posting to Facebook that the PA should not arrest a journalist. Freedom of expression is a universal right. 

Dear President Mahmoud Abbas, 

We demand you immediately release Human Rights Defender Issa Amro from arrest by Palestinian security forces. Issa's Facebook post criticizing the PA for the arrest of a journalist should be recognized as a protected for of freedom of expression. We are joining the call from the UN, Amnesty International and numerous human rights groups. Free Issa Amro!

Sincerely,

    All part of the tragedy- divide and conquer. I am sad for Issa – and that the PA does this.

    Freedom of expression is a human right, which we know you value. Please allow the debate and respect the views of others as you would wish yours to be respected

    This horrible conflict can only be resolved by dialogue.

    You have our support in this difficult endeavour.
