Beaten arrested in interior ministry

I’m writing about her in this space because Mona is a loud, proud feminist and supporter of choice.

My thoughts and good energies are directed to her tonight. To her and all the many prisoners SCAF has and is beating, arresting, and detaining, including @alaa (who has been in prison since Oct 30) and @MagButter (who was with Mona tonight).

Mona’s family and the State Department are already on the case.
