Ethiopia - Bring Ethiopian activists home for the holidays
Daniel Bekele and Netsanet Demissie, both courageous human rights lawyers and coordinators of the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) in Ethiopia, have been in detention for over two years. They are on trial for treason related charges because of their peaceful human rights work, dedicated to ending poverty in their country. If found guilty, they could face life imprisonment or the death sentence. After numerous delays by the court, they are due to receive their verdict on 24 December.
This could be their third holiday season behind bars and away from their loved ones.
Join GCAP and CIVICUS by:
1) sending a message of hope to Daniel and Netsanet and their families;
2) sending a letter of appeal to the Ethiopian authorities, urging them to bring Daniel and Netsanet home for the holidays.
3) sending a greeting card by post to Daniel and Netsanet, via the Ministry of Justice
