[Wikimedia-l] Free Bassel

Gerard Meijssen-3
Hoi,
I was so afraid when I read that Bassel has been sentenced to death. I read
it on the website of Amnesty International [1]. I blogged about him in the
past [2]. I am sad to say that it is him.

Bassel was active as a Wikimedian, he worked towards making information
available about Palmyra.

If there is anything that we can do, please let us do this.
Thanks,
      GerardM

Gerard, this is devastating news. Please send our love to Bassel's family.
I still hope this is not true.

If there is anything we can do from here please let us know.
Lila

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Free Bassel

Samir Elsharbaty
Some suggestions of things we can do:

1. The list of signatories on the amnesty international website does not
include the WMF, the Wikimedia community, any of our affiliations or any
representation from the Wikimedia movement. I wonder if we can contact them
and request adding any of the above mentioned?

2. Use our SM channels to retweet the WMF blog post [1] about him with the
news that he is sentenced to death.

3. We all try to share supporting tweets on the #FreeBassel hashtag.

Samir

In reply to this post by Gerard Meijssen-3
This is such a sad news. I have been following news about him and i can't believe this. This is a black day in the history of Human Civilization. We can indeed do little things like sharing posts about him and writing about him because that is all we can do perhaps.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Free Bassel

Jeff Elder
Hi Samir and all,

We are happy to continue posting about Bassel, with all our hopes that he
emerges OK.

We posted about this latest development when it was first reported a few
weeks ago. This morning we updated our blog post
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/10/08/bassel-missing-syria/> and reshared
it  <https://twitter.com/Wikimedia/status/668886735586066432>out on Twitter
and Facebook <https://www.facebook.com/wikipedia/posts/10153658400313346>.
I also RT'd Creative Commons, who posted about it, and with whom we've been
in touch on this. And we have posted Noura's video
<https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page> on Facebook. (It's media of
the day on Wikimedia Commons.) I'll tweet the video later today and stay in
touch with other orgs on Twitter posting about him.

Keeping Bassel in our thoughts,

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Free Bassel

Gerard Meijssen-3
Hoi,
Sorry but in my opinion there seems to be a lack of urgency. An update to
an old blogpost when someone is sentenced to death? Is that all?REALLY????

At this time we can make a big issue out of it by asking attention for
Bassel from our Central Notice. It is after all the first time that a
Wikipedian is likely to die for the things that we value... What is the
value of a life, of a Wikipedian of someone from Syria?

We need to do much better than this. This is a Wikipedian. It is a notable
person in his own right and we sit on our hands?

Yes. The movement needs to free resources quickly to campaign
efficiently on this.

Gerard said it too.
I understand that this is something unprecedented, as it was the Wikipedia
"strike" for SOPA/PIPA.
I don't know how diplomacy works: but I bet everyone in the world would be
scared when Wikipedia puts something in the most visible place in the
world.
We could add a black ribbon to the logo, or use directly the CentralNotice.

I'd like to invite the Board and Lila and the whole Community to seriously
think about it.

A Wikipedian, a member of our community sentenced to death for believing in
our Mission and Vision is something extraordinary. I understand the caution
of setting a precedent, but I think it's worth it.

Also, remember: we have few days before we'll ask money again to all the
English-speaking countries.
How could we ask for money when we are not using the power that was
bestowed upon us by the very same spirit, love and courage that is
condemning Bassel to death?

I strongly support this.

As for the precedent, recall that the Wikimedia Foundation supports
the users, we did this with User:Diu in Greece:
https://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/02/14/wikimedia-foundation-supports-wikipedia-user-subject-to-defamation-lawsuit-in-greece/

This is much more than a lawsuit.

A message I do not want us to send is that if you enough force or the
threat is big enough, then we, as a movement, will be scared away.

Gerard, or Andrea, or anybody who knows better than myself, could you start
a draft on Meta Wiki with a proposed text for a banner, and where it should
link/what it should advise readers to do?

Yes, a CentralNotice would seem appropriate here.
Please help flesh it out at

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Free Bassel

Katherine Maher
In reply to this post by Daniel Mietchen
Hi everyone,

Thank you for raising this issue here on this list. I wanted to share some
more information about how we’ve been working to support Bassel to this
point, in public and behind the scenes. Unfortunately, some efforts are
sensitive, so can’t be shared in full on public mailing lists. But we’re
committed to supporting next steps or decisions by the community, and
keeping you updated going forward.

Working with some other colleagues at the Foundation, we have been tracking
Bassel's case for some time now, in direct contact with the organizers of
the #FreeBassel campaign <http://freebassel.org> [1], and Bassel's family.
The actions we have taken to date have been in coordination and approval
with the #FreeBassel campaign, including:

   - Coordination and communication with related organizations, such as the
   Electronic Frontier Foundation and Amnesty International. (ongoing)
   - Regular contact and updates with senior human rights officials at the
   U.S. State Department. (ongoing)
   - Outreach to the press around Bassel’s arbitrary detention and
   contributions to the free knowledge movement. Please see this WIRED
story, “A
   Jailed Activist’s 3-D Models Could Save Syria’s History From ISIS
   <http://www.wired.com/2015/10/jailed-activist-bassel-khartabil-3d-models-could-save-syrian-history-from-isis/>.”
   [2] (Although we did reach out to WIRED, we cannot say for certain if that
   story was the direct result of our efforts or others within the #FreeBassel
   coordination community). (10/21)
   - Raising Bassel’s case in public speaking opportunities, including
   Lila’s keynote to the Creative Commons Summit. (10/15)
   - Blog post #FREEBASSEL: Free culture advocate who built 3D renderings
   of Palmyra missing in Syria
   <https://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/10/08/bassel-missing-syria/> [3].
   (10/08)
   - Ongoing participation in #FreeBassel social media campaigns on
   Facebook and Twitter.

Bassel is in a situation known as arbitrary detention
<http://en.alkarama.org/1763-syria-un-calls-for-the-release-of-freedom-of-speech-advocate-bassel-khartabil>
[4]. Arbitrary detentions are characterized by uncertainty, lack of
information, and volatility. They’re scary because we don’t know what’s
happening, and often we are making decisions without a lot of information.
Our goal is always to support Bassel to make sure our efforts help him
without putting him at greater risk. So we’ve been working with experienced
human rights campaigners, including the #FreeBassel campaign, to understand
the best actions to take at different times over the past two months.

We’ve been in touch with Bassel’s family, who would support continued
efforts to raise awareness about Bassel’s situation through a note on
Wikipedia if that should happen. We can also join action letters (like this
<http://www.amnesty.nl/nieuwsportaal/pers/syria-fears-life-free-expression-advocate>
[5]) where the community agrees it's appropriate. If the community decides
to move forward with an action, we are here to help. We are monitoring the
discussions and activity in
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Banner:Free_Bassel as a place where
community consensus can form. Please let us know if there’s anything else
we can do to support efforts to raise awareness for Bassel.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Free Bassel

Asaf Bartov-2
FYI: User:Odder has now created [[m:Free Bassel
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Free_Bassel>]], as a landing page to link
from the banner.

If anyone would like to help with a design for the banner (I concede not
everyone shares my taste for 10pt-black-on-white text), we would be able to
move ahead.  There is, so far, nothing but support.
