After the first parcel to Nabeel Rajab was stopped at Dubai customs, we have started a second attempt to reach Nabeel today.
The first parcel was sent from Julian Assange in London on Monday, 28. October. After a four day odyssey in the UK, the parcel finally traveled through Paris and reached Dubai on the fifth day of its journey. It disappeared 24 hours later on
A second – identical – parcel was posted at a local Dubai post office today at 20:03. So we are resuming the journey from where the first parcel abruptly disappeared in Dubai.
«Delivery for Mr. Rajab» is the continuation of «Delivery for Mr. Assange». In January 2013, !Mediengruppe Bitnik sent Wikileaks-founder Julian Assange a parcel containing a hidden camera. After 32 hours and a tantalizing and intense journey, sharing over 9000 images of postal bags, vans and delivery centres, the camera arrived and Julian Assange performed for the several thousand people watching.
Enclosed inside the parcel are appeals for Nabeel Rajabs release and the photo Free Nabeel Rajab signed by Julian Assange. The parcel was posted from the Ecuadorian embassy in West-London at 16:12 GMT on October 28, 2013. And is due to arrive at its destination within 48 hours. Should the first parcel fail to reach Nabeel Rajab, a second parcel will follow within the next few days.
