Protest for Ahmed Mansoor
This week marks seven months since Ahmed was arrested for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression.
On Sunday, 22 October, Mansoor spent his birthday in solitary confinement, far from his family and friends.
Rights advocates, including English PEN with colleagues from Amnesty International’s UAE team, RSF and the International Campaign for Freedom in the UAE, will host a protest to show support for Ahmed and to call on the UAE authorities to release him immediately and unconditionally. They will also be taking this opportunity to deliver a petition to the embassy calling for Ahmed’s release with over 20,000 signatures.
Join the protest at the UAE Embassy in London in solidarity with human rights activist and writer Ahmed Mansoor.
