you made it happen - environmental defender freed!!!

"We won! Andrei is free!"– Yevgenia Zatoka (Andrei's wife)

Turkmenistan: Amnesty International is happy to report that Andrei Zatoka was released from jail on January 31. Andrei had been detained on December 17 by local police at the airport in his home city of Dashoguz. There were allegations that he was targeted to punish him for his peaceful work as an environmental activist. He and his supporters are grateful for the appeals sent by AI's Urgent Action network on his behalf.

amnesty international works because YOU take action...

peace out <3
