Saturday, 14 November
Union Square (opposite Whole Foods)
We were going out to protest for Hossam and he’s now been released. But instead of quietening down, let’s keep the momentum up. Those of us in New York are able to protest freely and should let the governments of both Egypt and the US that we have not forgotten Shawkan or Alaa or Maheinour or any of the other human rights activists and journalists in jail in Egypt now.
So, see you on Saturday at Union Square for one hour. Let’s make this a bigger protest. We will prepare for some human rights defenders to speak and advocate on the draconian crackdown on activism and freedom of speech in Egypt. It is also good for all of us to meet and see how we can work together.
