Alexander Aan imprisoned for 30 months.

Alexander Aan has been imprisoned for 30 months in Indonesia for posting "God doesn't exist" on his Facebook page.  Amnesty international describes this as a serious setback for freedom of expression and I agree.  No one should be imprisoned for an idea that they have, nor for speaking that idea in a public forum.

Irregardless of our religious or political affiliations we should all be able to agree on this.  This is a petition at to ask the president to put pressure on the Indonesian government to release Alexander Aan.

Call upon the Indonesian government to respect the freedom and dignity of all its citizens and to free Alexander Aan.
