Press Release: Free Sowore Now
The arrest coming ahead of the Monday protest he and others are spearheading suggests a fleding culture of intolerance that may be gripping the country.
Except he has committed any other offence that we are not aware of ,calling a protest cannot be a crime under any law to warrant anticipatory arrest as has been done .
We demand immediate release of the activist whom we declare a prisoner of conscience for every minute he is held.
We advise the government to temper its mood as this is a democracy and not military rule
