TWITTERSTORM for Dr. Kylie Moore-Gilbert #ActNow4Kylie
March 7, 2020, 9-11 pm GMT

Thank you for joining the twitterstorm for Kylie Moore-Gilbert. We appreciate your support.

Kylie Moore-Gilbert is an Australian-British academic and expert on Middle Eastern politics. She has been arbitrarily imprisoned in Iran since September 2018 and has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for espionage, which she categorically denies. Since her detention, she has been in solitary confinement and isolation and has been deprived of proper food, medication, contact with her family and consular access. She has been on 5 hunger strikes in protest of her conditions. Her physical and mental health are rapidly deteriorating.

The goal of the twitterstorm is to:

• Raise awareness of the plight of Kylie Moore-Gilbert
• Call on the governments of Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison to work together to secure her release and to ensure that she is transferred immediately from isolation to the general ward and allowed access to food, medicine, family contact and consular access.
• Urge people to sign the petition http://chng.it/57wBJk8x

Imagine a room, 2m wide & 3m long, empty, with no window. The walls are bare, save perhaps for the desperate scratchings of others. There is no bed, just a small pile of thin blankets. Imagine this is your home. @ScottMorrisonMP @MarisePayne #ActNow4Kylie http://youtu.be/4ozSm1J4Cn4

Imagine months with barely any food to eat, nothing to do to pass the time, no contact with family, just concrete walls closing in on you. Imagine not knowing if you will ever be freed. @BorisJohnson @DominicRaab #ActNow4Kylie http://youtu.be/4ozSm1J4Cn4
