In 2014 the Swedish-Eritrean Journalist Dawit Isaak turned 50. Dawit Isaak has been held in Eritrean prison since 2001 without trial. Amnesty International considers him a prisoner of conscience and has called for his immediate and unconditional release.
Dawit Isaak is the only European citizen held as a prisoner of conscience. In order to increase the urgency and awareness of his case the Swedish NGO, Stödföreningen Dawit Isaak, has produced reflections from actors, journalists and opinionleaders who all participated in this years released musicvideo “Fågelsång” (Birdsong).
I am on a daily basis engaged in the Dawit Isaak case. In this music video I share some personal thoughts from when participating in the recording of Fågelsång/Birdsong.
Spread the word – that is something all of us can do. #FreeDawit Please read more on FreeDawit.com
