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,

    Freedom of Speech should NEVER land someone in jail, especially when ISSA speaks the TRUTH!

    Istrongly support the Palestinian people and their rightful aspirations. However, this action by the Palestinian Authority is apalling and can only lead to a loss of support for them.
