Release Mahdi ‘Issa Abu Dheeb

In early 2011, as peaceful protests spread across Bahrain, Mahdi ‘Issa Mahdi Abu Dheeb and his colleague Jalila al-Salman called for a teachers’ strike to support the growing demands for reform. Since Mahdi and Jalila were leaders of the Bahrain Teaching Association, most of us would say that they were just doing their job.

But the Bahrain authorities have since made them pay dearly for their legitimate work.

By April, both of them were detained. Jalila has since been released but Mahdi remains behind bars – where he has been for over two years. Take action now
