Journalists Around The World Demand Egypt Free Jailed Journalists With #FreeAJStaff

“Journalism is not a crime.”

1. Today Al Jazeera used #FreeAJStaff to organize a global day of solidarity with their four journalists imprisoned in Egypt on dubious charges since December.

2. The Al Jazeera journalists are four of many journalists — Egyptian and foreign — who have been imprisoned, harassed, and threatened. AJ has demanded the release of their journalists, but the Egyptian government has continued to renew their detention.

3. Al Jazeera journalists from across the world took part.

6. Journalists and media professionals from all across the world also joined in.

No demonstrations near me sadly, so from afar #freeajstaff - in solidarity with demonstrations worldwide.
