Egypt: Free Prisoners of Conscience

“An international campaign to free Monem was launched by a group of activist bloggers from several countries. Reporters Without Borders released a petition calling for the release of bloggers Abdel Monem Mahmoud and Karim Amer (Abdel Karim Soliman). Several other activities are taking place in New York and Europe to line up more international support for prisoners of conscience in Egypt and to bring more attention to the human rights violations by the Egyptian government and its assault on freedom of expression and peaceful opposition,” announces Ikwan Web, a Muslim Brotherhood website in English.
