Their collective struggle to preserve human rights (widely ranging from the very basic right to live to the right of representation, from the right to education to academic freedom) and professional dignity is “representative of the broader struggle of those academics worldwide who strive to promote peace, justice and academic freedom through their research, writing and advocacy. This campaign has a particular goal of helping professors and researchers that have been targeted solely because they have exercised their right to free speech by signing a petition. Most of these academics, who are invaluable to training future generations and advancing sciences, do not have other means of income while they continue legal proceedings to regain their positions at their universities.
