Fr Gabriel,

We have learnt of your remand in police custody this Friday on tramped up charges for leading the landless
people against insatiably corrupt land grabbers in North Rift region of our country.

We have been following your travails at the hands of the wretched grabbers, exploiters and their protectors
in government with anger but fully confident that both you, your colleagues, the people under your caring
leadership and the just cause you so bravely champion will be victorious.

We would like to assure you that you are not alone, and you have the backing of millions of deprived and
exploited Kenyans in this just struggle.

Never fear,
Never waver.
With millions of struggling oppressed Kenyans behind
Advance, brother, advance!

We are calling on all patriotic and democratic Kenyan organisations and individuals to condemn this
despicable infringement of the democratic and human rights of the struggling people of North Rift and
those leading them in their just struggle to reclaim and protect their land from the politically connected
and corrupt individuals and corporations.

In solidarity,

AbdulQadir A. Nasser
