On June, 5th, Nabeel Rajab has been sentenced to 5 years of jail. His trial, postponed many times, gave as result this unjust judgement.
Some days after, he was granted by Paris as an Honorary Citizen . But this award matters very few, because he is imprisoned.
He is a prisoner of conscience, his only “delict” being using Twitter as a tool of free speech. As a human rights defender in Bahrain, he used Twitter as we all use it.
But there is absolutely no freedom of speech in Bahrain .
I write this post to speak out for his freedom, as I tweet for him.
I know the public opinion is focused on the World Cup , and the violations of human rights by Russia, but human rights matter worldwide.
The condemnation of Nabeel Rajab for having tweeted is a blatant violation of free expression, and we can’t stay without reaction facing it.
Five years of jail for the use of Twitter is a recall that Bahrain violates human rights daily.
This post will be short . As usual, it is an activism one.
There is no word to add, save FREE NABEEL RAJAB.
