Things are still uncertain and we don’t know what the future holds for any of those arrested, or - but right now, I’m deliriously happy to say that Karim is out of prison and at home, hopefully tucking into an ice-cream. Thank you to everyone who raised their voice ✊

Tomorrow a deportation flight is scheduled to leave for Jamaica. It will split up families, devastate lives, rip up legal protections and double down on systemic racism in the criminal justice system. There is still time to stop it.

Western governments have lavished aid, arms and international support on 's military regime, while promising to push for human rights when it matters. Karim is a brother, son, husband, ally and friend to so many - it matters now

Karim has spent his life speaking out and campaigning for victims of injustice - now 's dictatorship has arrested him and his colleagues on trumped-up charges, and this time they need us to speak out and campaign for them

The most stressed out I've ever been about Christmas was when I was 16 and I got my first ever job, working at M&S in Dundrum. As soon as I started I kept hearing these myths about the Christmas Eve Waste Sale, where all the food that wasn't sold on the 24th was marked down 90%.

Britain is a close ally of 's - successive prime ministers have rolled out the red carpet for President Sisi at Downing St, and the UK licences millions of pounds of arms sales to the dictatorship every year. Our government has to use its influence to step up the pressure

The arrest of Karim and his colleagues has provoked an international outcry - everyone from US senators to European ambassadors and the UN Secretary-General has condemned it. But although Britain has joined those calls, & could be doing much, much more
