Shine a Light on Human Rights: Free Filep Karma Now!
In May 1961, Amnesty International began its global campaign for individual freedoms and human dignity. In May 2005, an Indonesian court sentenced Filep Karma to 15 years in prison on charges of treason for raising the Papua flag in a peaceful ceremony. Join us at DuPont Circle, Washington, DC on Thursday, May 24 as we commemorate 51 years of Amnesty International's global human rights activism and toast to the freedom of Filep Karma and all human rights defenders. The event will include speakers, musical performances and actions! Following this, we will march to the Indonesian Embasy for a spirited rally calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Filep Karma and all prisoners of conscience in Indonesia.
