ALERT: Amnesty staffer dragged away by Mubarak’s police!
Our colleague was taken along with at least three others, including a delegate from Human Rights Watch. We do not know their current whereabouts.
The ongoing crackdown on civil society in the wake of the protests in Egypt is appalling. It is essential that human rights monitors be allowed the freedom to do their crucial work at this time of crisis. Egypt must release these individuals immediately.
Please, we need you to speak up with the voice of the international human rights movement:
Amnesty International USA
P.S. The calls you’ve been making to the Egyptian Embassy and the emails to the US government are making a difference. Please keep up the pressure!
