Response to Bernardo de La Paz (Reply #6)

13. I did read that. It was a stupid move by AI. AI did not say what Navalny said or when.

AI only offers the vague allusions to "hate" speech. If it was really that 2007 statement about immigration, as the author of the article suggests, why the fuck did AI give Navalny prisoner of conscience status on Jan. 17 in the first place?

Giving him the status then taking it away at this crucial time, without explicitly stating what Navalny said in the ensuing month to deserve the revocation, does so much more harm than good.

The only hate Navalny has displayed to most people's knowledge is toward Putin. So by AI revoking Navalny's status as a prisoner of conscience, they have gifted Putin a propaganda coup, and set back the democracy movement in Russia, not to mention making it much more likely Navalny will stay in jail. So AI's continued "fighting" for his release hardly compensates for the damage their blunder has done.
