Free Savchenko!

This Sunday, March 1st is global Free Savchenko Day.
Nadia Savchenko is a Ukrainian pilot that was taken across the boarder into Russia in June of 2014. Since December of 2014 she has been on a hunger strike to protest her continued false imprisonment. If Nadiya survives, this Sunday will be her 79th day on her hunger strike.

People not only from Ukraine, but Germany, Ireland, France, Japan, even Russia have been calling for her release.

We would like to cordially invite you to become part of the movement.

On Sunday, March 1st, we want to invite you to wear a nametag of some sort saying "My name is...Nadiya Savchenko" or "Ask me about Nadiya Savchenko" or "Free Savchenko"

Even if you can't wear it the whole day, we encourage you to do so for even just a little bit. Anything will help raise awareness about Nadiya, what she has been going through and her courage!

Also, we would like to try and collect as many photos from participants as possible, so we could post these on the blog!

This blog is dedicated to raising awareness about the conflict in Ukraine.

If you would be willing to participate, we ask that you might consider sending us a picture of you wearing your nametag! This is a great way to raise even more awareness!
Please spread the word about Nadiya and invite other to join us!

Thank you for your time and consideration. We hope that you will join us in Standing With Ukraine.
