The European Bahraini Organisation for Human Rights (EBOHR) launched last year in March an open end campaign for the release of Mohammed Hassan Jawad (“Parweez Jawad”), Hussain Jawad’s father. Parweez Jawad was arrested on 22 March 2011 and has now spend six years in prison. He is 69 years old and in bad health. You can read more about Parweez Jawad in my previous blog post “Do you know Bahrain’s eldest prisoner of conscience?”
Please join the campaign and help Hussain Jawad and EBOHR to free his father Parweez Jawad.
- Please take a piece of paper and write on it “Free Parweez Jawad”, preferably in your own language.
- Take a photo of yourself in which you hold the sign.
- Please tweet the photo to @EBOHumanRights and to @HussainMJawad or send it via e-mail to email@example.com.
- Please also tweet it to Ministry of Interior in Bahrain (@moi_bahrain) and Justice Minister Sheikh Khaled bin Ali Al-Khalifa (@Khaled_Bin_Ali) and ask for Parweez Jawad’s release.
EBOHR has already received a good number of photos by individuals, but also by Amnesty International groups. If you are in an Amnesty International group, you could suggest them to join the campaign.
As inspiration here are some examples of the photos EBOHR received so far:
EBOHR would love to have 1000 photos. Therefore please send your photo and join the campaign to #Free_Parweez Jawad.
