Dying for Freedom - Protest in support of Ahmed Mansoor
Join ICFUAE for an action outside the UAE embassy in London to stand in solidarity with the award-winning Emirati rights activist Ahmed Mansoor as he enters his fourth week on hunger strike in UAE’s al-Sadr prison.
He is protesting against his inhumane prison conditions and unfair trial, where he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for Tweets critical of the regime’s repression.
It has been reported that since being detained two years ago, Mansoor has been held in solitary confinement in a cell which has no bed, nor access to running water or a shower.
Locked away in isolation with no contact to the outside world, this is the only means he has left to fight for justice. As his health begins to fade, there has never been a more important time to take action in support of this brave human rights defender.
Join us to demand his freedom.
Date and time: Wednesday, 24 April 6:30PM.
Location: UAE embassy, 1-2 Grosvenor Cres, Belgravia, London SW1X 7EE
