We’re getting closer to securing the release of Filep Karma, and need your help to go the final mile.
The good news is that fellow Indonesian prisoner of conscience Yusak Pakage was released from prison earlier this month.
Soon after his release, Yusak sent us a warm message of thanks and added:
"[This message is] from someone who has suffered and who now smiles again thanks to Amnesty."
The power of these words says it all. Yet as Yusak celebrates freedom, Filep suffers with urgent health problems in an abusive, squalid prison in West Papua. Indonesian authorities have delayed his travel to Jakarta for treatment.
While we've made significant progress in gathering support for a Congressional resolution condemning Indonesia's imprisonment of peaceful political activists, more support is needed.
Filep's freedom - and possibly his life - are on the line.
