Stand on behalf of Muhammad Bekzhanov at Kollwitzplatz Market - 22 August 2015

Despite the presence of an Amnesty Direct Dialogue team 200 meters away, our latest stand at the Kollwitzplatz Market was a success as usual.

We were working on behalf of torture victim Muhammad Bekzhanov from Uzbekistan, one of the world’s longest-imprisoned journalists. Our impressive over-dimensional banner worked really well (thank you Nicolas): At times, the public were queuing to sign it.

We also managed to collect over 200 signatures on the official petition. A big thank you to Murat, Nicolas, Abaka, Ursula, Laurie, Cristina, Geoff, Sarwa, Mike, Yasmine and Ulrike for their time and effort.
