Weeks ago, Atheists for Liberty shared a petition and fundraiser in support of Nacer Amari who claimed to be fleeing persecution in Tunisia. We have removed posts in support of Nacer Amari that were on our social media pages following Atheist Republic and Atheist Alliance International releasing statements casting significant doubt on the credibility of Nacer Amari’s claims.
Atheist Alliance International will contact donors who supported the fundraising efforts to issue refunds. Donors can also contact Atheist Alliance International -- firstname.lastname@example.org -- to receive expedited refunds.
We apologize to those who donated to Nacer due to our efforts on social media and will continue to work with our international partners to ensure that atheists in need of real help get assistance.
