Release Mazen Darwish and Other Activists

Greetings,

This letter is sent to you today to show support for Mazen Darwish, the Director of the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM), and eight others who were arrested by Syrian authorities in a raid on February 16, 2012. These people are human rights activists who are believed to have been arrested for speaking out. The SCM has been instrumental in reporting about the current situation in Syria, and Darwish and the others are at risk for torture and ill-treatment. These people were merely exercising their basic human right to freedom of peaceful expression. Please urge the Syrian government to keep these activists safe and facilitate their release.

Thank you!
