Dear fellow Human Rights Defenders, Well-wishers and Friends,
We wish to extend our most sincere gratitude to all of you who worked tirelessly and offered us moral and financial support during the period of our arrest. The two days and two nights we spent under detention proved to be not only a trying time for us as activists, but it was a brave show of courage and unity from all of you all the way until we were released.
The emails and phone calls from all individuals and organizations all over the world have overwhelmed and humbled us. We may be the martyrs, but you are the true heroes in all of this. The love and support that you have shown to our struggle is the very reason we shall never stop fighting to achieve our rights. We would never have successfully made it without you.
The charges against us have not been dropped yet. It is another huddle to jump, but we believe that with you on our side, together we will get the victory we so much deserve.
Yours in Solidarity,
Pepe Julian Onziema
