Don’t stop fighting for Amina

logoAMinaThere have been reports in the media that “Amina’s lawyer” has said she is safe at home.

If she is so safe, why is she no longer able to speak to anyone or be in contact with others? And is this Amina’s lawyer or her family’s? Clearly, it’s the family’s!

According to FEMEN’s (edited) statement:

The latest news about Amina has been shared by a woman calling herself Amina’s lawyer. The woman says that she has met Amina and that Amina is with her family.

This information is one of those rumours shared by strangers who have never been in contact with us before.
Amina’s telephone is still off. Someone else replies to Amina’s Skype; when we asked to speak via video, all contact was stopped.

From our point of view, the lawyer is representing the interests of the family and not Amina’s. By saying she is safe, they aim to stop the vast public mobilisation in her defence. Even if Amina was detained by her family, there would be no reason to speak of safety.

We have still not heard Amina’s voice nor seen her face. Until we do, we will continue to search for her and call for her defence!

  1. Ted Powell says

    is a good news know the fact she’s save and alive

    According to the article, this is not “known as a fact”—FEMEN says, “We have still not heard Amina’s voice nor seen her face. Until we do, we will continue to search for her and call for her defence!”

  2. Anastasia Spathis says

    Such courage. She must have very strong convictions. Good luck to her. It is however, scary for a young woman to have to go through such length to prove a point. .

  3. Eristae says

    She’s not safe until she’s free. Even if what the lawyer says is true and she’s not physically harmed (which we do not know), being a prisoner is not being safe. There is no safety in captivity.


  1. […] Today, someone posing as “Amina’s lawyer” has said she is safe and at home. The lawyer seems to be representing the family’s interests rather than Amina’s in order to stop the public mobilisation in her defence. There has been no contact whatsoever with Amina so we need to keep fighting for her! Read FEMEN’s statement here. […]
