Egypt: Call for global solidarity after 16 Dec army attack on protesters

Posted on December 18, 2011

Protesters against military rule in Egypt have appealed for global demonstrations against the latest brutal assault led by the Egyptian army on the sit-ins at the Cabinet Offices and Tahrir Square in Cairo on 16 December 2011.

By 18 December 10 people had been killed and hundreds injured in the attack. Solidarity protests were beginning to spread across Egypt and worldwide in response.

Please mobilise urgently to demand that Egypt’s military rulers immediately stop attacking protesters. Call on governments worldwide, and especially the Mubarak regime’s main backers, the USA, UK and other western states, halt arms sales to Egypt and end their financial and material support for the repressive apparatus of the Egyptian regime.

What you can do:

1. Organise or join protests outside Egyptian embassies worldwide. See below for details of global solidarity action. Send reports and pictures of protests to menasolidarity@gmail.com or post on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/mena.solidarity

2. Organise a solidarity statement and collect signatures. Send or deliver to the Egyptian embassy in your country and send copies to menasolidarity@gmail.com or post on facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/mena.solidarity

3. Share and translate reports of the military attack on the protesters to help counter the lies being put out by Egyptian state media. Follow @3arabawy on Twitter and see Ahram Online’s website for detailed coverage.
