Daniel BekeleNetsanet Demissie
A petition is currently being circulated on behalf of Human Rights defenders Daniel Bekele and Netsanet Demissie. Daniel and Netsanet's verdict is set for next Thursday, 22th of November. Given previous patterns of delay and confusion by the court, it is not clear whether it would deliver its verdict at the scheduled date or if its verdict would lead to the acquittal and release of the prisoners of conscience, which is the only just outcome in this case.
Please take few minutes to sign the following petition to  be sent the Governments of the United States of America and the United Kingdom, the European Union, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, The African Commission on Human and People's Rights, International Human Rights and Civic Organisations.
