Free Maikel Nabil - No to military trials for civilians

Maikel Nabil was the first prisoner of conscience in the post-Mubarak era. He was arrested on March 28, and tried and convicted in a military court that's not up to par with international standards. Maikel Nabil was given a three-year prison sentence , for publicly insulting the Army on April 8th.

He´s been on hungerstrike for the last nine days.

Since February 11, more than 7000 civilians has been tried in Military trials.
