The Presidency, Egypt
Shawkan is a brilliant young photojournalist with so much to offer the world. He was arrested taking photos at the Rab'a sit-in - in other words on the street doing his job. On Wednesday July 1 he will have spent 687 days in prison - pending investigation. He has been charged with nothing. Shawkan has developed hepatitis C in prison and his health is deteriorating badly. Look up his work, and help us save him.
