Youcef's Story Reaches 2.7 Million

By Matthew Clark1342469235000

The ACLJ’s Tweet for Youcef campaign continues to expand in reach as its impact is felt worldwide – now reaching more than 2.7 million Twitter accounts globally each day.

After more than 1,000 days illegally imprisoned for his faith, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani’s story is now reaching over 2 million in English and more than 670,000 in Portuguese through the efforts of the people of Brazil. The international outcry for his release is having an impact in Iran, and with a new court date set for Pastor Youcef, increased international pressure for his immediate and unconditional release is more important than ever.

Pastor Youcef has stated publicly that he appreciates these efforts, your prayers, and continued calls for his release. He wrote:

From time to time I am informed about the news which is spreading in the media about my current situation, for instance being supported by various churches and famous politicians who have asked for my release, or campaigns and human rights activities which are going on against the charges which are applied to me. I do believe that these kind of activities can be very helpful in order to reach freedom . . . .

Please continue to Tweet for Youcef, and share this infographic of the impact you are having for this innocent man’s freedom.
