E Mail to let the Government Know How You Feel About Babar Ahmad
Babar Ahmad is a British citizen who has been detained without trial in the UK for almost 8 years facing extradition to the US for offences allegedly committed in the UK. All the evidence against him was collected in the UK with most of it being sent to the US before the Crown Prosecution Service could decide whether to prosecute him in the UK or not, a fact only admitted by the CPS in November 2011. It is only right that Babar be tried in the UK and not extradited to the US.

Please write to the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer, to demand that Babar Ahmad be immediately put on trial in the UK. Copies will also be sent to the Attorney General and the Home Secretary.

We encourage supporters to prepare their own letters using the above points. A sample letter is below for your convenience but a personalised letter always carries more weight.

Cry of the Caged Bird

Beyond the mask and beyond the front.

Beyond the name and beyond the image.

Beyond the mask and beyond the front.

Beyond the name and beyond the image.

Beyond the rhyme and beyond the prose.

Beyond the metaphors and beyond the rhetoric.

Beyond the campaign and beyond the publicity.

Beyond the words and beyond the speeches…

There is a caged bird. 


There is a caged bird whose only wish is to be a bird again.

There is a caged bird that yearns to fly free again

And soar over the mountain tops and glide through the valleys.

There is a caged bird that is no better than any other bird

And no different to any other bird.

There is a caged bird whose wings have been cut and voice has been muted

Whose only desire is to be a bird again.

That’s why the caged bird sings.
