Three political prisoners in Bahrain who claim to be victims of human rights violations have sent a letter to the British Guardian complimenting Lewis Hamilton for his engagement on equality, anti-racism and human rights, and asking him to use his position to make their problem known to the wider community.
"It is very touching to hear that the world champion shares our views. Hamilton's appearance would be something that could bring an advantage. "
Hamilton won his seventh world title last weekend, and then made a clear statement that F1 must be clear in supporting human rights:
"We understand that we must not ignore human rights in the countries we are going to. This is not a plan for 20 or 30 years, but the present. "
In particular, in the letter, the prisoners only ask Lewis to wear a T-shirt on GP weekend to show support for political prisoners, as he did with T-shirts for equal rights, anti-racism, the Blacks Lives Matter movement or the arrest of police officers involved in the murder. Breonne Taylor. They also show the harsh reality of the GP weekend in Bahrain:
"The Bahraini government is desperately trying to wash away its international image, and they are keeping the F1 race away from the reality of its repressive regime. For many of our fellow citizens, glamor racing has long since worn off and the race has become an annual reminder of our torment. So I'm taking a risk by writing you this letter from prison.
Reading about your fight for human rights and the need for change gave birth to hope. For the people of Bahrain like me who are tortured, imprisoned and banished from their families and calling for this same thing - to hear a world champion looking for the same thing we do - it’s deeply touching. Together, we may be able to encourage change and make this event something that every Bahraini would be proud of. ”
So far there has been no response from Lewis Hamilton.
