Have you signed the petition to Save Pervez?

Pervez Kambaksh, a 23-year-old Afghan journalist is facing execution after a religious court in that country found him guilty of downloading material from the internet which is said to question the role of women in Islam. The Independent, London, has launched a campaign to save Pervez, and Roy Greenslade says every journalist must sign the petition.

“Every journalist should sign, not simply because Kambaksh is “one of us”, not even because his conviction is a denial of press freedom, but because it is barbaric to put anyone to death for standing up for people’s human rights.”
