Chances are you don’t recognise the man in the photo.
His name is Mahdi ‘Issa Mahdi Abu Dheeb.
He’s the president of the Bahraini Teachers Association.
And he’s in jail because of his trade union activities.
Mahdi’s health is rapidly deteriorating and the global union federation for teachers, the Education International, has called for a massive online campaign of protest.
It will take you just a minute or so to send off your message — and it might well save Mahdi’s life.
And then — please forward this message on to your friends, co-workers and fellow trade unionists.
