Me Nam (Mother Mushroom) / Vietnam
10 YEARS IN PRISON FOR BLOGGING
UPDATE: Good news! Me Nam was released on October 17th! Please do not take action on her case. Huge thanks to everyone who supported her case.
Me Nam or “Mother Mushroom” is one of Vietnam’s most influential bloggers. She’s pushed for action on police brutality and environmental issues, but in June 2017 she was sentenced to 10 years in prison for “conducting propaganda” against the state and sharing articles online. Her harsh sentence is part of a wider attempt to silence people who speak out in her country. She is a prisoner of conscience, jailed solely for the peaceful expression of her beliefs.
