Shez Cassim got put in jail in the United Arab Emirates for 8 months and counting because of this video clearly intended to be just a funny video.
You can really take comedy and basic human rights for granted when American citizen Shez Cassim has been imprisoned for 8 months in Dubai for uploading a comedy sketch to YouTube.
On behalf of #feralaudio and the comedy community we are rallying for his release.

I LAY CLAIM TO MY POWER. I REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM.
Anonymous asked: What do you do to feel better when you're depressed? I've been so god damn down and lonely lately. I've been a shut in. Haven't hung out with friends in weeks. Haven't been with a woman in years. I feel painfully alone. Hoping for advice or thoughts
the thing is to master the idea that feeling down is as important as feeling up. it’s two sides of the same coin. i have a chemical imbalance and i wouldn’t wish my lowest lows upon my worst enemy! but it’s like being sick, treat it exactly like the flu.
lay in bed, drool yourself into the ground, cry, watch movies all day when you should be doing whatever it is you are supposed to be doing, and don’t beat yourself up over it! it really is like the flu, the universe is a wave form everything is in flux. you will come back up when you’re down until eventually you flatline. but until then, during a low learn to not crucify yourself and love yourself for the fact you are so emotionally intelligent you CAN get low and recognize it.
ride it out! you’ll feel good again.
