An #Outsider Newsflash (2/1/2015) : On #FreeAJStaff & The Plight of Journalists

We here @ #Outsiders were gratified of the news that Peter Greste, the imprisoned Al Jazeera Journalist,  was released earlier today by Egypt and has been deported.      We join all around the World as  we call for the release of his colleagues as #FreeAJStaff continues for the detained Journalists along with their colleagues who have been convicted in absentia.   

As we assessed this development, this was reported by +Haaretz.com on the Grid: 




This is also a welcome development--even though the third team members will continue to be detained.   We also  remember all those who have continued to be detained in Egypt and throughout the World that we have remembered here @ #outsiders.   We also Jason Rezaian of the Washington Post who is supposed to be "tried" soon for unspecified crimes--The Washington Post latest is noted here for reference.     



Journalism is Indeed not a crime.
