On June 16 2008, Hicham Yezza, editor-in-chief of Ceasefire, was granted bail against the wishes of the Home Office. After thirty-one days in detention (having been arrested under the ludicrous Terrorism Act) ‘Hich’ was allowed back home – but still faces an outrageous, political deportation. Here’s what you can do:

1. Get involved!

Join the facebook group and keep checking the website for updates on Hich’s situation.

Email [email protected] for more information

2. Donate to Hicham’s legal fund

The legal fight is ongoing and it is crucial that we have the funds to fight it properly. Please try and raise money amongst your friends, and make a bank transfer of any amount to the campaign fund. So far we have received donations ranging from £2.00 to £2,000. Every donation makes a difference to the campaign.

Donations should be transferred to the legal funds account. If you think that you can help, the best way to do it is via online bank transfer. Contact [email protected] to ask about any related information.

3. Send us a testimonial endorsing Hich

During the ongoing legal process, we need to collate as many testimonials endorsing Hicham’s character and place in the University of Nottingham, the surrounding community and the UK. This will put pressure on the Home Office to allow him to stay. If you know Hich personally, and wish to lend a hand send your testimonials to [email protected].

4. Write to your MP and the Home Office

We must maintain political pressure on the Home Office, which can be done directly, via letters to the Home Office (and relevant ministers), or via your MP. Many MPs are supporting the case already, and it is crucial you let your own MP know about your concerns.

You can find out who your MP is, and contact them via email, here.

5. Sign the petition

Sign this electronic petition demanding that the Home Office stop Hich’s deportation and respect his right to due process in a court of law.
