Call for the release of Louisa Hanoune
We learnt about the committal order and the incarceration of Louisa Hanoune, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Algeria, by the military court of Blida, on May 9th. She had gone to a simple summons of an examining magistrate to be heard as a witness.
We do not understand this arbitrary arrest that gives rise to legitimate emotion.
Louisa Hanoune has been known everywhere and for years for her stance and her uncompromising fight in defence of democracy, freedoms, women's rights and always on the side of the people and the oppressed.
Whether one agrees with her political positions or not, nothing can justify her detention.
We demand her immediate release.
