Our dissident, Nabeel Rajab, is innocent. He shouldn’t be in prison for protesting for Human Rights. He was fighting for a cause that could change his society in a good way; and even though he criticized the Prime Minister, he showed courage to stand up against the leader of his country. Honestly, their country should be more like ours. Most people in our country don’t get in trouble for those type of things.
In the the early Renaissance, Galileo was stating the fact that the earth revolved around the sun. He claimed that the earth wasn’t the center of the galaxy, but according to the Pope of the Catholic Church everything revolved around the earth. He was punished with house arrest for the rest of his life for stating a fact. Nabeel was stating that people should have equal rights; that was disagreeing with the societies norms, but he was explaining to people why that was what he thought.
Once again, Nabeel Rajab shouldn’t be imprisoned. He has done nothing wrong. And if you think so too; please sign this petition.
