Protest letter to the Egyptian Minister of Defense re Maikel Nabil Sanad

Dear Excellency Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, I have learned that on 10 April 2011 pacifist and conscientious objector Maikel Nabil Sanad was sentenced to three years in prison for 'insulting the military institution' and 'disturbing public security' based on articles he published on his blog. He was sentenced secretly. On the day of the sentencing, his family and friends were told that the trial had been postponed to 12 April 2011 while in fact it was taking place.

Yesterday, the prison department sent me a delegate to inform me about the ratification of the sentence against me of the military court to 3 years, charged with offending the military establishment reputation.

Maikel Nabil Sanad: News From Magr Prison

Related peace activists: 

Maikel Nabil is jailed in the Magr prison, in a small cell. The cell is called a reformatory, and is know as "the trial," where he stays for days without seeing sunlight. He is also not allowed to get out of
the cell for any exercise. The guard interacts with Maikel only once in 24 hours, when he opens the cell at 12pm to hand Maikel his one daily meal. Then he locks 6 metal doors on the way out.

Maikel is then left in that cell with three extremely dangerous criminals. He has been threatened explicitly by one of his cellmates that "one of these days, I will cut your face with a razor."

Gleichzeitig erwachsen zwei große Herausforderungen aus den Ereignissen in Nordafrika und dem Mittleren Osten für diejenigen unter uns, die gewaltfreie Aktionen befürworten und gegen eine Regierungspolitik arbeiten, die prinzipienlose Allianzen der Zweckmäßigkeit und Waffenhandel beinhaltet.

“Nos hemos librado del dictador, pero no de la dictadura”

Represión en el Egipto (post)-revolucionario

El 7 de marzo, pocas semanas después de la renuncia del dictador egipcio
Hosni Mubarak, Maikel Nabil Sanad escribió esta frase en un exhaustivo
artículo en su blog [1]. En ese artículo Maikel analizaba con detalle el
papel del ejército egipcio durante y después de la revolución, y llegaba
a la conclusión de que el pueblo y el ejército en ningún momento habían
“marchado de la mano”, como tan a menudo se dijo durante la revolución.

Maikel había tenido sus dudas en todo momento. Así, por ejemplo, contaba
