Zeinab B.
started this petition to
Maryam Al-Khawaja
Maryam and her Dad are both peaceful democrats whose entire campaigning strategy is based on international human rights norms and non-violent resistance.

Today, Maryam is being charged with false political crimes such as "insulting the king", and assaulting the police.
She faces a heavy sentence, her Investigation is extended for 7 days and not even allowed to see lawyer before interrogation.

The problem is that the Bahrainy regime is not a regime known for its gentle treatment of political prisoners, so Maryam could be subject to any kind abuse and ill-treatment!

Maryam AL Khawaja has always been a human rights defender and she stood firmly for us all, so the least she deserves is to stand by her at this time!

Free Maryam AlKhawaja.
