Release Human Rights Activist from Detainment

Target: Abdel-Aziz bin Habtour, Prime Minister of Houthi-controlled Yemen

Goal: Release prominent human rights activist from detainment by the Yemeni government.

Prominent Yemeni human rights activist Hisham al-Omeisy has been detained by the Yemeni’s Houthi authorities without charge. Al-Omeisy has been an outspoken critic of the nation’s authoritarian government, especially on social media. Now, he faces torture and potentially death.

Dozens of activists and journalists have been detained by the government in Yemen since an armed conflict began in the country. Some have even “disappeared.” The same fate may await al-Omeisy, whose whereabouts are unknown.

Al-Omeisy must be released back to his family. He’s caused neither harm nor danger to Yemen or its citizens. He faces no charges and the government cannot say why he’s been arrested. Sign the petition and demand that al-Omeisy be released.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Minister Abdel-Aziz bin Habtour,

Hisham al-Omeisy, a prominent human rights activist in your country, has been arrested without charge. He is now detained in an undisclosed location. He faces torture and potentially death.

Al-Omeisy has done nothing wrong. He has only served as a voice against an armed conflict and authoritarian regime. He faces no charges and legally has done nothing wrong. I demand that he be released to the safety of his family.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
