A small group of us protested for Kareem’s cause in front of the Egyptian embassy.
Some of the posters that we made:
Mohammed, president of Bahrain Youth Society for Human Rights.
Mohammed & Marwa:
Marwa, Mohamed and the others; good job, and know that your effort is not in vain, it is establishing our freedom. As the new banner reads, Kareem is sacrifising his freedom to allow us to express our views without fear!
[...] Despite a support site, petitions and demonstrations in Bahrain, London, Stockholm, Paris, Rome, New York (twice) and Washington DC calling for his release, an Alexandria court found him guilty and sentenced him to four years in prison. [...]
[...] We started out with almost nothing. Our first protest only had 3 people. We felt like we had no case whatsoever, but we kept rowing. I wasn’t going to sink and accept what happened to him. We fought, for months, and we kept gradually gaining the attention of what is now dozens of thousands of supporters. Today, it’s a worldwide effort to Free Kareem. And this is proof of the fact that you can make things possible if you get back up each time you fall, and you fight with patience and much strength and faith. It’s not easy at all, but it’s so worth it. I have proof now of why I should never give up. I’m so thankful for my great friends and our supporters for being inspired by us, believing in us, and most importantly, taking the time to help us in many ways. [...]
[...] When Esra’a, our campaign Director, started the first rally for Kareem last year in Bahrain, it only involved three people in front of the Egyptian Embassy in Manama. Initial mockery she and her friends received only strengthened her will. Indeed, this year supporters for Kareem had demonstrations in five other countries worldwide, and Kareem’s case has appeared in virtually every media outlet and in every blog. This is all thanks to the hard work of bloggers, volunteers, and staff members around the globe: namely, you. [...]
[...] Human Rights is a personal friend of this campaign’s organizers as well as Kareem Amer. He rallied for Kareem in December when he was first imprisoned without trial and helped make Kareem’s case known [...]
