Na’eem Jeenah ( Director of The Freedom of Expression Institute),
The Mail and Guardian on-line editor has asked you to consider inserting the fact that you are the spokesperson for The Palestine Solidarity Committee on your THOUGHT LEADER profile.
Sorry to sound like a 12 yrs old but why have you not done so ?

Dear Riaan ,
Did Na'eem reply to your email ? ( his profile still hasn't been
amended to include that he is spokesperson for the Palestine Solidarity
It is evident that Na'eem is using his FXI credentials to further his
PSC work. To my mind, this is a blatant abuse of the THOUGHT LEADER
platform that M&G has given him.

He did receive my email, he said.
However, though you may have a point about his interests, his bio remains his business. We don't prescribe to TL contributors what to write on their blogs, and we are not prescribing what they should put in their bios either.
All we can do is request someone to consider changing their bio, which is what we have done.
