- Amina, Tunisia
One of the people who kidnapped Amina has been boasting that they did it for “her own good”. It is unclear though whether she has been hospitalised or held somewhere else. Her phone has been taken from her and communication with her has been stopped so we do not receive any information from her. (Via Caroline Fourest)
There are reports that 19 year old Amina who posted nude photos of herself for FEMEN Tunisia has been seized by her family and possibly the civil police (see video) and been hospitalised in a psychiatric hospital.
The only madness here is that she has been detained rather than those who have threatened her with stoning to death and are now denying her freedom.
She must be released immediately and unconditionally.
As she said, “my body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honour”.
Hands off Amina Now!
4 April is the international day to defend Amina.
We will stand with her on that day and every day. She represents all of us.
World Social Forum being held in Tunis during 23-28 March 2013 take note: we expect you to take firm action in Amina’s defence.
