Free Johan and Martin
Two Swedish journalists, Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye have been falsely accused of terrorism in Ethiopia. Freedom of press is the most important tool against injustice in the world. The Swedish government needs to act now! We, the undersigned, demand by the Swedish government to openly show their support for the important job that freelance journalists, such as Johan Persson and Martin Schibbye, are conducting. The government must take their responsibility and act in favour of their civil rights as investigating journalists. Our demands are as follows:
1) For the Swedish government to give this matter highest political priority.
2) Swedish prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and minister of foreign affairs Carl Bildt must publicly support Johan and Martin.
The list of names in the petition will be sent to Carl Bildt, the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Swedish Government
