Do not imprison Joke!

Human rights activist and political poet Joke Kaviaar is facing six months of jail time. In recent years, she wanted to provide equal human rights to people-without-papers. The state of the Netherlands sees her as a threat to homeland security and attempted to force her to censor all her poetry and art work of which she refused. She is now facing imprisonment for not censoring her art work. The state wants to criminalize her words and actions under 'intent to terrorism'. This is yet another where occurrence where free speech and basic human rights are severely violated in The Netherlands; a country that hosts the human rights tribunal in The Hague. A final verdict will be given Jan 22nd, 2013. When the whole world is watching, her and our rights might stay protected. This is essential for the future of activism! Read on her website her final plea, "Every Word is a Spark! http://www.jokekaviaar.nl/Elk_woord_een_vonk.html

Do not let the Netherlands government silence her!
