This year you may have seen some posts on our social media sites about the current activity in the Maldives. After we found out the ocean conservationist and human rights leader, Mohamed Nasheed, was imprisoned and not given the right to an attorney, we sprung to action. We created a petition here to ask the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group to get involved with this situation. Many people do not understand the history or current state of the Maldive Islands and the impact that Mohamed Nasheed has had to the community. We challenged you all to read this article from the Berkeley Journal of Sociology to educate yourselves. A recent article, here, discusses the international organizations applying pressure calling for his release. Please continue to help us free Nasheed!
