"Zunar" Zulkiflee Anwar Ulhaque

Facing Prison for Tweeting

Political cartoonist Zunar faces a long-term prison sentence after posting tweets condemning the jailing of an opposition leader in Malaysia. The government is going to enormous lengths to silence dissent and debate, and lock up its critics. Write a short letter to the Prime Minister of Malaysia, urging him to drop the charges against Zunar and help stop Malaysia's crackdown on free speech. After you've written that letter, please also take a moment to draw a solidarity picture for Zunar, letting him know that you are taking action for his human rights. All the information you'll need can be found in the case sheet and sample letter below.
