In addition to delivering on the edit for our upcoming film on resistance to South Africa’s apartheid state for the V&A and greasing the wheels of other upcoming commissions, I’m working pro bono for the campaign to free three journalist colleagues locked up in an Egyptian jail for doing their jobs.
29 December sees the anniversary of the arrests of Mohamed Fahmy, Peter Greste and Baher Mohamed. Students and other journalists have also since been arrested – some in absentia.
I need you and everyone else you know concerned about a free press and free expression to help us out. I’m specifically looking for someone who knows their way around Illustrator or Photoshop to help me work on a few images. There’s tonnes. And time is tight.
I also need your social networks – real and virtual – to work on direct actions to take to ensure this stays on the public and political agenda. Wherever you are and whatever you do, you have influence. You have power. Please use it.
