Where young men in civilian clothes, but in military boots, are forced to march with sticks in their hands against their brothers,” he wrote on his Facebook wall. “If I don’t have the courage to take to the streets, at least I will have the decency not to look happy when thousands and millions live From brothers, a life of lack, frustration and pain. I refuse to be complicit in this national disease that is nothing but fear. The same fear I feel twenty times over is to double-check every sentence I write before publishing. When you live in fear it is because you live without freedom.”
