From War Resisters International
War Resisters International has alerted us about the imprisonment of Maikel Nabil Sanad, an Egyptian author, military critic, and pacifist.
Maikel has been on a hunger strike since last week, and on Tuesday, initiated a thirst strike.
“Maikel Nabil Sanad was trying to deconstruct the myth that the army stands and stood with the people of Egypt during the revolution,” declared the solidarity group Free Maikel Nabil. “The army actively arrested and tortured opposition activists, and this continues to this day. Sadly, his own arrest only proves his point.”
Take action: Send a supportive postcard to Maikel and a letter of protest to the Egyptian defense minister!
