The best thing at crisis times is that they make you clearly see your loyal friends. Every crisis I passed through in my life exposed to me the core of people around me… I can say that I’m very happy with the loyal friends who are standing by me in my battle, from various nationalities, ages, religions, ideologies and types. All of them are exerting almost daily efforts so that I be free again… I thank them all and I’m aware that words can’t express my appreciation to their loyalty, but I’m sure that after I get out I would earn a new big family that I belong.
The points that I would talk about now are some things which people can participate with, so that we would be able to manage a successful battle, contributing in a way to my freedom and in another way to prevent the military establishment from repeating the same suppression with anyone else.
1- Helping me to distribute my articles
Help me to deliver my articles to the largest sector of readers… Since I was arrested, I wrote 15 articles. Deliver them to all of your friends’ circle… You may help in translating them and deliver them to all local and foreign newspapers.
2- Demonstrate for me
Join the page “Free Maikel Nabil Sanad” with their stand-ins at Tahrir or in front of the Military Court or Ministry of Defense… Get with you a banner against military trials for civilians and refuse imprisonment in cases of publishing.
3- Write about me
Write about me on your blog and on Facebook. Say your opinion frankly, even if you disagree with me… Keep on writing so that the case won’t die.
You may send post mails supporting me, to someone of the following:
a. Ministry of Defense (Obba Bridge/Kobri El-Obba). Tell the Minister of Defense that you object the ruling against me and ask for the unconditional immediate release for me.
b. Minister of Interior (Lazoghli square). Ask for the improvement of the circumstances of my detention at El-Marg prison.
c. Letters to me to the address of the prison (El-Marg General prison). Those letters give me a big psychological support. However, those letters are read before I receive them and sometimes they don’t give them to me, but the letters make the prison management feel that they ought to treat me better.
d. Letters to me through the page “Free Maikel Nabil Sanad” and those are going to reach me without someone reading them, as well as, I would answer you as soon as the letter reaches me.
5- Talk to journalism about me
Talk to Egyptian and foreign journalists who you know and stimulate them to write on my case.
6- Nominate me to a human rights award: That would make a good pressure in favor of my case.
7- Come to visit me in prison: after co-ordinating with the page “Free Maikel Nabil Sanad”.
I thank again all who are struggling for my freedom and I believe that we are going to celebrate together soon for our country, free of militarists’ suppression.
