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,

    Abbas does not represent the best interests of Palestinians. He has become a weak pawn played by israel against his own people
