I think this is all very exciting! This is my first post in my new blog.
Maybe I should give you some ideas about which topics I want to write. I will basically write about all topics I am passionate about. Currently these are mainly two which are very different, the one topic is human rights, the other one is the arts. I have been interested in human rights for a long time, but I was never very active. I signed a couple of petitions, but I did not really do any more than that. This dramatically changed earlier this year when I read about the Saudi Arabian blogger Raif Badawi. I have explained in same detail why his case caught my attention so much and I will repost my article here. I started tweeting for and about him under the name @CiLuna27 and I really enjoy the possibility to get into contact with people everywhere in the world and share and campaign for a common cause. I soon took up other cases as well. Apart from Raif Badawi I support currently the following human rights defenders & prisoners of conscience:
- Waleed Abulkhair (Saudi Arabia)
- Hussain M. Jawad (Bahrain)
- Nabeel Rajab (Bahrain)
- Mahmoud Abou Zeid aka “Shawkan” (Egypt)
- Dr. Mohammed al-Roken (UAE)
- Hossein Ronaghi-Maleki (Iran)
- Saeed Malekpour (Iran)
I will certainly write about all of them over time.
My second passion are the Arts. This includes classical music, opera, poetry, literature and art. I love going to concerts, museums and exhibitions. I want to write about the events I particularly enjoyed or which I find worth mentioning. I hope there will be many readers of this blog and I am looking forward to comments and questions.
