This post is not very long, but is an activism one.
When people stay quiet and do nothing, the worse can happen.
Action , facing these situations, that type of violation of human rights, is necessary.
In the West, Raif Badawi received the Sakharov Price in 2015 for his fight in favor of free expression.
Since 2015, the fight must continue. Free expression is a human right.
