July 17: International Day of Action for Tariq Ramadan


TO DENOUNCE PROFESSOR TARIQ RAMADAN’S UNJUST TREATMENT BY FRENCH AUTHORITIES

An international day of action will be held at French embassies around the world on July 17, 2018 to express outrage at the French government’s handling of Professor Tariq Ramadan’s case.

These actions are organized by the coalition Due Process for Tariq Ramadan in response to the denial of basic human rights in a case that has become highly politicized.

Many countries will be involved in this action including the UK, Canada, Belgium, USA, Brazil, Niger, Senegal, Mauritius and others.

A vigil will also be held at Fresnes prison in Paris where Professor Tariq Ramadan is currently being held in preventative detention.

The Free Tariq Ramadan Change.org petition, which has more than one hundred and fifty-three thousand signatories, will be presented to the embassy along with the worldwide appeal for due process for Tariq Ramadan, signed by more than a hundred journalists, politicians, scholars and academics.

If you would like to do this action in your country, direct message or email at [email protected] so we can provide you with more details.
