#FreeAlaa 27 October 2015

27 October marks one year since Egyptian blogger Alaa Abdel Fattah was last arrested for his peaceful activism, and he has remained detained since then. We are all gathering around one hashtag – #FreeAlaa – to call for his release and the release of all those unjustly detained in Egypt.

Today, on Human Rights Day, we remember Alaa Abd El Fattah and Bassel Khartabil (aka Bassel Safadi), who are serving arbitrary sentences that will jeopardize their futures as innovative and free thinkers from the Arab region. Break the silence with us today in this global campaign for Alaa, Bassel, and the many others who have been unjustly imprisoned because of their activism.
