URGENT ACTION - Algeria
Here is an urgent action arising from the harassment by security officials in Algiers of the association of families of the disappeared, SOS Disparus. SOS Disparus and other family associations have been under pressure for years from the Algerian government, which has tried to silence their campaign for truth and justice for the 8,000 people who were subjected to enforced disappearance in the 1990s.
Please take a few moments to write to the Algerian authorities to protest against this harassment, and to urge Algeria to allow SOS Disparus and other associations to exercise their right to free expression.
The URGENT ACTION is attached plus four sample letters to adapt or print out – one each to the President, Justice Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Algerian ambassador in London. Contact details are shown on each letter.
Many thanks for your support.
