Email campaign to the US House & Senate Representatives on the Foreign Affairs Committee
Free Ola and Hosam has launched an email campaign to US congressmen and Senators on the Foreign Affairs Committee asking the American government to step in and reunite Ola and Hosam with their children.
Link to email campaign: http://www.writeforolaandhosam.org
Ola (55 years) and Hosam (58 years) have been unjustly detained in solitary confinement in Egypt for over 500 days now. Ola has become the longest female political prisoner held in solitary confinement in Egypt, as she spends 23 hours a day in a windowless cell, deprived of proper food, access to a washroom, and any communication with her family or a legal team.
The verbal and physical abuse is ongoing. According to Amnesty International, her conditions amount to torture.The UN High Commissioner along with UN HRC Working Group on Arbitrary Detention have demanded for their immediate release.
Ola and Hosam are legal permanent residents of the United States and their children and grandchildren are American citizens.The American government must step in to restore Ola and Hosam’s most basic and fundamental human rights that they have been wrongfully, and unjustly deprived for what has come to be almost a year now
Help us in fighting for their freedom by signing this petition and forwarding it to all your friends and family.
