Raja Petra was sensationally and unexpectedly freed after a successful habeas corpus application in court today. It is a victory not only for Raja Petra but for all those who campaigned hard for the release of the ISA detainees, participated in candlelight vigils, and signed petitions.
But the camapaign for the release of all ISA detainees and the abolition of the ISA itself must go on. Do not let up in the struggle for justice and freedom.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week.
