Action of the Month
Free the last human rights activist detained in the UAE
Ahmed Mansoor is a human rights activist and blogger in the United
Arab Emirates. He was arrested under mysterious circumstances by
state security on 20 March and hasn't been seen since. Prior to his
arrest, he was the last remaining free human rights activist working
in the UAE.
Ahmed's arrest follows a pattern of detaining human rights activists
in the UAE - where many have been tortured. We fear Ahmed could face
this fate. Call on Emirati authorities to release him now.
Please take part in
this Amnesty action.
