#OpValentine press release:
Where will we be on Valentine’s day? With whom? One thing is certain, most of us will have the freedom to tell those we care “I love you” and shower them with hugs.
Separated from their friends, their family, all of their love ones, many of our brothers and sisters will be deprived of this most basic human right. They have sacrificed their freedom to expose corruption and human rights violations. And as would say Che: “At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love.”
So, Valentine’s day is a most appropriate occasion to share in their spirit and remind them that their isolation is only physical. They are not alone, not forgotten and we stand with them and care. So let our Valentine’s day cards show that we are indeed Legion, that we do not forget, and that our gratitude and solidarity can be expected.
