I started this blog for personal matters, to publish my art and literature, Now it seems I am turning this blog to a reporting media of Human abuse and Human being in wretched plight all around the World. I hope, We all citizen should rush to the crying and disturbing souls and help and support them. Protest and publicizing can help stop atrocities on public and bring safety measure to the mass under calamities.

Johan Teterissa:Faxjam for freedom of expression

Faxjam for freedom of expression

Johan Teterissa is a teacher from Maluku, Indonesia who is currently serving a 15 year prison sentence after he took part in a peaceful protest.
He has been imprisoned solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression.
Last week, we spoke with Johan and he asked us to share this message with you:
“I urge Amnesty International to continue campaigning for the freedom of all political prisoners from Maluku...we should not have been charged in the first place... many of the prisoners are still suffering from the torture and some have even died... the police should be investigated for what they did... our families should also be given reparations as they are now suffering financially without us... I thank Amnesty International for its support.“
This week, we are responding to Johan's call and demanding his release.
Johan was arrested in June 2007 for his part in a peaceful protest during which the "Benang Raja" flag – a banned symbol of Maluku independence – was raised. He was tortured by police and continues to suffer from internal injuries as a result. He is a prisoner of conscience and must be immediately and unconditionally released, along with all other prisoners of conscience in Indonesia.

action Now
Will you help us keep campaigning for freedom for prisoners of conscience like him? We are calling on the Minister for Justice and Human Rights in Indonesia to release Johan Teterissa and all other prisoners of conscience in Indonesia.
Please don't keep silent on this injustice.
In solidarity,
