As the world celebrates World Press Freedom Day, the Egyptian journalist and blogger, Abdel Monem Mahmoud, sits in jail after reporting on torture and condemning the transferring of civilians to military tribunals.
On this occasion, a number of bloggers and activists from around the world have launched the Free Monem campaign. “ We cannot let the regime succeed in silencing him. We have to show the Egyptian regime that when you imprison a blogger, you don't silence his voice, you AMPLIFY it!” they wrote in their mail announcement.
