#FreeShez, a U.S. citizen detained in the United Arab Emirates since April 7, 2013 (for posting an amateur comedy video on YouTube in 2012) is the current focus. Check out my new page with brief descriptions of each org in progress.
Thank you Thomas Lennon for the tweet! This makes me livid. As someone who was kicked out of college for refusing to stop publishing a student newspaper, this crap gets my attention. I was put on the FBI’s Subversives List, but never sent to jail. Yet. This bullshit needs to stop NOW, across the globe. Stop suppressing speech, governments, corporations and schools! Stop jailing comics. This is 2013, not the Dark Ages.
I signed the online petition, liked the Facebook page, and followed the Twitter page. I also made a new flag for my Barbie monitor, so tomorrow everybody on the Las Vegas Strip and at the Fremont Street Experience who get a picture with me as FFIREHS will have the Barbie monitor flag reading “#FREESHEZ FreeShez.com”.
Now you know. What are you going to do?
