AMOS YEE STILL STUCK IN US PRISON, ASKS FOR BOOKS TO BE SENT TO COMFORT HIM

Amos is still needlessly in prison because the government continues to challenge the court ruling that granted his political asylum. The government’s decision to continue to incarcerate him weighs heavily on his spirits as he continues to fight against the enduring stress of his imprisonment in the US and the trauma from his imprisonment in Singapore.

Amos has found comfort reading books that his supporters have sent him over the weeks. Amos has requested Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam​’s book “Make it right for Singapore: Speeches in Parliament, 1997-1999” in solidarity with those who have been unjustly persecuted by their governments.

Amos extends his solidarity to those around the world who fight against authoritarian regimes. From Raif Badawi​ in Saudi Arabia, to Wikileaks​’ Julian Assange​ in the UK, to Liu Xiaobo​ in China, to Edward Snowden​ in Russia, I stand with you.

The prison only allows paperback books purchased from large retailers such as Amazon. The Amazon link has been provided below.

Books can be shipped to:

Amos Yee – Inmate #300802
