Call for Support and Solidarity
To many people, “debtors’ prison” sounds like an archaic institution, something out of a novel by Charles Dickens. But the idea of imprisoning people who can’t pay what they “owe” is alive and well in the case of Dr. Hassan Diab. Hassan will be put in prison if he does not pay his “creditor” – in this case, the Canadian government – $2,000 per month for the cost of his own surveillance.
We invite you to be one of 100 people – A HUNDRED FOR HASSAN – who care about due process and the presumption of innocence and oppose abusive extradition proceedings, by pledging $20 or more per month or more to share the cost of Dr. Diab’s oppressive burden. This is our way of taking a public stand and saying, “This is just wrong.”
