What: Prayer Vigil in Support of a Fair and Open Hearing for Muhammad Salah
As a civil rights organization, our aspiration is to see every American granted his or her full rights under any and all circumstances. Mr. Muhammad Salah, an American citizen, is entitled to the right to a fair trial. This entails the right to public hearings. This right hangs in the balance, while several of his other rights have already been violated.
The Coalition to Protect People’s Rights, an alliance of over 20 organizations and individuals united to protect citizens from civil liberties and human rights abuses, will hold a press conference on Friday, March 3 coinciding with the opening statements for the suppression of evidence obtained under torture hearings.
CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Yaser Tabbara participated in a local press conference at the Downtown Islamic Center in order to address the media regarding the pending Muhammad Salah case.
Journalists take pride in defending the rights of citizens in a democratic nation and as an aspiring reporter, it scares me that cases such as that of Muhammad Salah happen in a country such as the United States. I was happy to see that the media is not sitting back and accepting the government’s case without fighting for what is right in a nation that claims to be free and democratic (“Secrecy’s corrosive effect in terrorism case, Feb. 2).
