A friend has been arrested…
A friend blogger, Abdelkareem Nabil Soliman, has been arrested for saying what was going on his mind in his blog. Unfortunately, he was born an Egyptian. He was even expelled from University in Egypt for that. University, a place where freedom of knowledge, freedom of speech, freedom to pursue one’s wishes should be the basic standards… and to think it is the one of the best Universities in Egypt.
I think it is at these decisive times that we all should gather and show we care. For that, I‘ll write tommorrow morning a letter and send it directly to the United Kingdom Egyptian Embassy.
It’s address is:
26 South Street
London W1Y 6DD
In Portugal it’s:
Embaixada da República Árabe do Egipto
Av D.Vasco Gama 8
No matter who you are I think you make a difference. I’ll keep you posted on my actions…
