Dr. Aafia's Trial to Start on Oct. 19.
Now more than ever Dr. Aafia needs your active support! Time is running out to mount an effective legal defense.
In order to truly help Dr. Aafia, a thorough investigation of the facts and a solid legal team need to be secured, both of these need funding.
At the moment Dr. Aafia is at the mercy of the government appointed lawyers who are severely restricted in terms of experience, funding, and independent action.
Dr. Aafia's Family Launches their Official Website
Confused about the facts? Looking for a reliable source for information about Dr. Aafia? The Siddiqui family has put together an online resource to allow the public to see the case through their eyes.
Unexplained detention, suffering and isolation have too long been this family's burden. Justice, humane treatment and due process are luxuries long denied to Aafia and her young children, replaced with abuse and imprisonment without formal charges. So today, we ask for all that is left, to pick up the pieces...
The main problem is the confusion surrounding Dr. Aafia' case: confusion leads to doubt, doubt leads to fear, and fear leads to inaction.
Our first task therefore is to publicize facts, expose deliberate disinformation by certain quarters, and inform and involve Pakistani-Americans and fair-minded fellow Americans.
To that end, we have held forums in Santa Clara, San Francisco, and Chicago. Now we have scheduled a series of educational forums and fundraising events in New York, Michigan, Virginia and Missouri, among other places.
