We’re so excited to share happy news with you: Algerian journalist Khaled Drareni, jailed for covering protests, has been conditionally released!
Thank you so much for your dedicated efforts and support for Khaled’s freedom during Write for Rights 2020. He’s shared his thanks to you:
“I want to thank everyone who supported me and who supported the prisoners of conscience because your support is essential for all of us.”
We are continuing to call for all charges against Khaled to be dropped. A hearing to have his file examined by the Supreme Court was scheduled for yesterday but rescheduled until March 25.
You can see Khaled's thank you video, images from visits with Nassima and Popi and Bongeka's families, and updates for Jani and Idris here >>
Thank you truly for all of your dedicated efforts during Write for Rights 2020. You are already changing lives!
