Dag Hammarskjold Plaza E. 47 St. and First Ave.
9 DAYS until we will make sure our request to #FreePeterBiarunharmed, is heard before South Sudan, neighboring countries, and the United Nations during the U.N. General Assembly. Please join us as we raise our voices to free Peter Biar Ajak.
Join us as we stand in solidarity with Peter Biar Ajak, friend, father, husband, and peace advocate, who has been unconstitutionally jailed in South Sudan since 28 July. By South Sudanese law, he is only allowed to be detained for two days before appearing in court or being granted bail. He has been afforded neither.
Peter is currently being held at the notorious South Sudanese prison known as the Blue House. His friends at universities, human rights institutions, media organizations and others around the world are calling for his immediate and unconditional release. Over 64,000 people have signed the change.org petition asking South Sudan to release Peter.
Meet us at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza E. 47 St. and First Ave. (directly across the street from the U.N. Headquarters in NYC) on Friday, September 28 at 5:30pm to stand with Peter and all others who are being detained without cause.
Call on President Kiir and the South Sudanese government to release Peter Biar Ajak unharmed as a sign of their commitment to peace in South Sudan. Allow Peter to resume his collaborative efforts in his country’s peace process!
