For 27 Years the James Joyce Ramble has been known to bring theatre, human rights awareness, and good fun to running!
The Ramble partners with Amnesty International to bring awareness on cases throughout the world where journalist have come under attack for trying to access the right to freedom of expression. This year we will highlight the case of Nabeel Rajab, a prominent leader of Bahrain's human rights movement, was convicted in August 2012 for participation in "illegal gatherings," "disturbing public order" and calling for marches without prior notification. However since May 2012, when Nabeel was initially arrested for criticizing the Prime Minister on Twitter, he has spent all but about three weeks in Bahraini custody as a Prisoner of Conscience. Nabeel is currently serving a two-year sentence.
