Help free Maikel Nabil - it's easier than you think

Many years ago amnesty international had a slogan on their banners that read:

"100.000 persons think: One person alone can't make a difference."

100.000 persons thinking that - will achieve nothing - while 100.000 persons understanding they are an impressive force - will achieve a lot.

In the case of the imprisoned blogger Maikel Nabil this force can decide over life or death. Because Maikel has been on hunger strike for almost two weeks now - and on thirst strike for six days. Three days ago he went into a coma and was transferred to the prison hospital. His family is not allowed to see him, no one is getting information about his health and what exactly they are doing to him in the prison hospital. Maikel's life is in danger and only the massive force of many understanding how powerful their one contribution in a sea of hundreds of thousand contributions is, can save him.

Please take action now! It is much easier than you think.

In accordance with the Urgent Action by amnesty international, the demands of Reporters Without Borders, the Human Rights Watch and the Committee to Protect Journalists - you can write five easy letters to the person's in Egypt that can make an impact on whether Maikel Nabil is set free or not. All texts you need are there already. All you need to do is copy them into your word doc or mail program and send them off.

Saving a life couldn't be easier. Making a point, that you do not tolerate the sentencing of freedom of opinion in the New Egypt after the revolution couldn't be more vital!

Please act now to help get Maikel Nabil free before his health deteriorates even more and he might suffer serious injuries or possible death.

Here you find the texts you need for your action.
