No time for rest

I've been feeling pretty sick over the past week, so I haven't gotten around to posting anything, but this issue can't wait. To sum it up, 6 innocent medical workers are facing execution in Libya so that they can be scapegoats for the corrupt President Gaddafi. Read more details on the story over at Respectful Insolence.

It's a matter of weeks before this issue will be decided, so that limits what can be done. You might want to try writing a letter to your senator/representative urging them to push the government to push for the release of these people, but I don't know how long it would take for the message to filter through to them. Orac provided a link to send a letter to al-Gaddafi or other Libyan officials, but I doubt that would be worth it. You could also donate to Lawyers Without Borders, which is helping to represent these people. And if you have a blog of your own, you can make a post about this issue there to raise awareness.
