We live in a city of fairness, compassion and respect. It also happens to be one of the most internet savvy cities in the world and I call upon all Canberrans to use their online voice today to remind the Egyptian Government that Australia will not accept the verdict or the sentence handed to Peter Greste.
The Egyptians believe that if they ignore us, we will go away. We won’t.
I’m so angry about this injustice and I trust you are too.
Canberra, it’s time to make a big noise.
There are a number of places to go to get the latest on the fight to free Peter.
Amnesty International’s online petition is already above 30,000. You can find it here.
