EFF Congratulates Syrian Blogger and Activist on Receiving Human Rights Award
Syrian blogger and human rights activist Razan Ghazzawi, who in December was charged with, among other things, "weakening national sentiment" for her work with the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression, received the Front Line Defenders' human rights defenders at risk award last week. EFF extends our utmost congratulations to Ghazzawi, whose work we have defended.
Ghazzawi was first arrested in December, then released along with other members of her organization, only to be re-arrested in a raid on their office in February (and released again shortly after). She still faces charges of "possessing prohibited materials with the intent to disseminate them."
