Kareem Amer has been kidnapped and beaten by State Security and his life is in real danger.
Become a Negotiator and join the Facebook Ransom Campaign immediately. Help us save his life!
Kareem Amer served four years in prison for his writing on the Internet. He was due to be released from Borg Al-Arab Prison in Alexandria on Friday 5 November. Instead, he was taken to the Alexandria headquarters of State Security Intelligence, where he is being held illegally and beaten.
Regardless of the justice of Mr. Suleiman’s original sentence, which remains very questionable, he has already served his time in prison!
We’re asking the Egyptian government and the SSI officials to immediately release Kareem, as his continued imprisonment is clearly illegal!
It is, in fact, kidnapping.
The problem is, we have yet to receive a ransom note from his kidnappers! What do they want? Is it money? What are their terms specifically?
In order to inspire the men of Egypt’s State Security Intelligence to tell us why they are keeping Kareem in defiance of the law, we are going on Facebook to respectfully request they send us the ransom note!
Please help us by becoming a Negotiator on this Facebook Ransom Campaign for Kareem. Here’s all you have to do:
2. Update your Facebook status at least one time every day, to share the following message: “Kareem Amer has been illegally detained and beaten for X days so far, past his official release date, by the State Security Intelligence in Egypt. Please help us by spreading the word, changing your Facebook profile picture, pasting this as your status, and joining the team of Negotiators through our Facebook page!” (If you Tweet this, kindly add the hashtag #HMFTB.)
3. Repost the latest HMFTB blog post, which you’re reading now, on your personal website, blog, or Facebook; or link to it from any other social networking website. This may seem obvious, but remember always that a good negotiator does not give away personal details.
4. Contact us if you have any ideas, recommendations, or new graphic designs to feed this ransom campaign!
5. Create something! The campaign is all about creating something which can be useful for Kareem. Do you want a sneak?! For instance, you can join the official Facebook page of the National Democratic Party of Egypt – the ruling party, and post our campaign page right there.
Here is some information on Kareem’s situation and his kidnappers:
