The human rights organization, CODEPINK: Women for Peace, has released a statement of support for our campaign by sending letters to General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Prime Minister Stephen Harper, on July 3rd, which marks the 1 year anniversary of Khaled's detention. The letters state:
"On this 365th day of Mr. Al-Qazzaz’s detention, CODEPINK implores those in power in Canada to help resolve this tremendous injustice. Each and every day that Mr. Al-Qazzaz’s release is prolonged is a crime. However, each and every day is also a new opportunity to end an egregious human rights violation. In order to uphold standards of human rights, civil liberties, and respect for human dignity, CODEPINK urges you to demand the immediate and safe release of prisoner Al-Qazzaz to mark the beginning of turning tides of respect for human rights in Egypt."
