AAFIA MOVEMENT

I am here for Aafia and I don’t see anyone voting for leaders who cannot take a firm stand for their Nations Daughter – Cynthia McKinney.

By releasing Aafia the US and Pak leaders can reverse a step in recovering the damaged sovereignty, Tangible action is worth more than dollars – Sara Flounders

People of Pakistan need Concrete Accomplishments and fulfillment of promises, Elections may hinge on Aafia’s release – Dr. Fauzia

Addressing to a Press Conference in the Islamabad Press club, American delegate human rights activist and six-time elected Congress woman Ms. Cynthia McKinney said “I am here for Dr. Aafia Siddiqui. When I first learned of her situation I decided to do all that I could do to reverse the injustice to this poor innocent woman. The United States has more to give Pakistan than drones, bombs and missiles. The United States can give Aafia back. The Pakistan Leadership just has to ask. One wonders what is more important to ask as an Ally than the daughter of the Nation? How can they face their voters, we use our elected offices to right wrongs and do the will of the people. Returning Dr. Aafia to Pakistan is the will of the people.  People power can become very rebellious when it comes to dignity and honor of their daughters. I sensed the emotion within the masses.

Sara Flounders an American political writer and member of the Secretariat of Workers World Party, as well as a principal leader of the International Action Center, while addressing the Press Conference said Aafia’s Case is a political case and she attended the trial and sentencing. Aafia was tortured, the 86 years was shameful and we realize a political sentence and her rendition illegal. The solution is Political and diplomatic. It does not lie in the courts even though they are needed to keep channels open.  We believe the political solution is simple and glaringly obvious however, this requires concrete action from Pakistani government. She further emphasized that By releasing Aafia the US and Pak leaders can reverse a step in recovering the damaged sovereignty .Tangible action is worth more than dollars.

Dr. Fauzia Siddiqui, Sister of Dr. Aafia said our people need Dignity & Pride & Recognition of our sovereignty, which was lost the day the day a dictator started selling our brothers and sisters to a foreign master. The people of Pakistan need concrete accomplishments. There can be no better way to win the hearts of people than to secure the release of Aafia. She further said everywhere there is talk of elections and votes. Elections are not just votes bought & sold. Candidates and coalitions must address the hunger for justices. People need concrete accomplishments and fulfillment of promises, like the promise to bring Aafia home. The political leader able to deliver Aafia back to Pakistan will have the support & gratitude of millions. Aafia is the daughter of the nation, the insult to the whole nation of her unjust imprisonment and continued torture and isolation must be ended.

Support is growing among political parties for signing the pledge that no one in Pakistani custody may be released to the US until Aafia Siddiqui comes home to Pakistan.
