protect the human

Dear Mussie,

Yesterday we heard the shocking news that two Amnesty staff members were among 30 human rights activists, journalists and others who were detained by the Egyptian security forces. They are currently being held in an unknown location and we fear that all may be at risk of torture or other ill treatment.

Please take urgent action to insist the Egyptian authorities immediately release all those detained

The arrests are part of an unacceptable clampdown on human rights observers and journalists in Egypt in an attempt to stem independent reporting on the uprising and subsequent crackdown. Our staff and others monitoring the situation on the ground must be allowed to do their crucial work and we are demanding their immediate and unconditional release.

The events in Egypt and the wider region are moving very fast. To keep up to date with the latest developments visit our Egypt campaign pages

We will keep you posted with ways you can help.

Thank you. Kristyan Benedict signature Kristyan Benedict Campaign Manager - Crisis Response & Country Priorities

Ps Next Saturday the 12 February we are calling for a day of action in central London in solidarity with the people of Egypt. More details to follow.
