Prison letter from Alaa Abd el Fattah

Jailed Egyptian blogger Alaa Abd el Fattah sends a second, self-lacerating letter from prison:

Let’s begin from the start: How are you? I am Alaa, a foot soldier in the revolution, there are those who sacrificed more than me, those who are much more courageous than me, and those whose role is much more important than mine.

I am Alaa, proud that I am doing what I can and sometimes surprise myself with what I am capable of. And I know myself and what I am not capable of. I try never to fail my commitments, I try to overcome fear always and I constantly try to be in the front lines at all times.

Sign the petition calling for his release.

  1. But why is he jailed? For people to support a political prisoner, which is a natural inclination, we should be able to articulate his situation to others.
