Demand US Issue Shahzad Akbar a Visa

CODEPINK, Reprieve and the Center for Constitutional Rights are hosting the first international Drone Summit April 28-29 in Washington, DC. We have invited lawyer Shahzad Akbar to speak about his experience representing victims of U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan. Unfortunately he may miss this opportunity to tell the American public about the impact of U.S. drones strikes on the people of Pakistan because he has been unable to procure a visa.

Shahzad has been waiting for a visa for almost a year and missed a similar conference last year because of this issue.

Use the form below to email Consul General Steve Maloney in Pakistan and let him know that Shahzad should not again be denied the ability to travel to the United States and share the stories of his Pakistani clients.
