Andargachew’s Birthday @ Downing Street 9th February 2015
Andy Tsege spent his 60th birthday in secret detention in Ethiopia.
On his birthday, with Jeremy Corbyn MP, we presented a petition to Downing Street demanding action by the British government to secure his release.
Even though Andy is locked away from his family, we wanted it to be a celebration – so we had birthday cake and balloons outside Downing Street. The children from our kid’s school even came to sing happy birthday!
For anyone who couldn’t come, you can see the excerpts here.
If Andy had been here, we would have celebrated at our home in London. But Downing Street was where we need to be on that day. With the help of Jeremy Corbyn MP and 70,000 people who joined our campaign, we delivered a strong message to David Cameron – you must act now to free Andy and bring him home to our family.
