If you can’t fight back when they illegally detain you, strip you down of your cloths and rights, violate your body, subject you to your worst psychological trauma, humiliation and abuse, you don’t stand idle and we shan’t either. You won’t stand alone and we won’t leave you. We fight back! We raise awareness and let the world know. We write.
