Demand for the Release of Qatari poet Mohamed Ibn Al Ajami

from 100 Thousand Poets for Change

Mohamed Ibn Al Ajami, after spending a year in solitary confinement, was sentenced to life in prison by a Qatari court on November 29, 2012

His crime consisted of reciting a poem extolling the courage and values of the popular uprisings in Tunisia:

Oh revolutionary, sing the praises of the struggle with the blood of the people
in the soul of the free carve the values of revolt
and to those holding the shroud of the dead tell
that every victory also bears its ordeals.
