Ala’ is another victim of the fight for freedom. He is an Egyptian blogger and activist who is currently being detained by the Egyptian police for taking part in a demonstration. I urge the Egyptian government to release him now and put an end to their continual violations of basic human rights. Make sure to check Sandmonkey’s blog for all the details. He, along with other Arab and Egyptian bloggers, should be commended for their relentless efforts to secure his release.
