Amnesty International Urges Morsi to ...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
04 Oct 2012

Amnesty International sent a letter Tuesday, October 2, to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi urging him to put an end to the “bloody” legacy of repression, torture and violence that have been used against protestors since the popular uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak’s regime.

Amnesty International highlighted the alleged violations of Egypt’s military and police against protestors over the past 20 months in two lengthy reports.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Nagad al-Bora’y, lawyer and human rights activist:
“I take this report as a claim that has to be seriously investigated. If it is proven that any of the military leaders has been directly involved, he must be tried. They are just like ordinary people who must be tried if they are convicted. They even have to be tried before civil courts, because these were violations against civilians in the streets.”

Amnesty International said that Egypt's new leader had to make reforms to ensure accountability and transparency of the army and the police.
The human rights group’s first reports sheds light on “Brutality Unpunished and Unchecked: Egypt’s Military Kills and Tortures Protesters with Impunity,” and the second deals with the "total impunity" of country's police forces against protestors.

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Mohamed Zari’, lawyer, human rights activist, head of Arab Organization for Criminal Justice:
“Besides asking President Morsi to punish the criminals for their crimes against the Egyptian people, the two reports also stress the necessity of reforming the judiciary system and presenting the real criminals for trial, whether they are from the police or the military.”

Amnesty International said that since the January 25 Revolution last year, as well as the violence used against demonstrators by Mubarak’s police, repression hasn’t disappeared in post-revolution Egypt, whether from the army or the police.

President Morsi had previously vowed to set up a fact-finding committee to investigate the killings and abuses that took place under military rule, yet the committee has been given little time to gather findings, get information and summon witnesses, Amnesty International said.

Uprising Preview
Cairo, Egypt
By f.stanton
16 Apr 2012

In January 2011, millions of Egyptians took to the streets in a spontaneous eruption against thirty years of oppression under the regime of Hosni Mubarak. Communicating via Facebook and Twitter, the largely peaceful protesters braved tear gas, beatings, and live bullets in the hope of facing down security forces and overthrowing the government. Over eight hundred lost their lives, and several thousand were arrested and tortured by security forces.
“Uprising” tells the story of the Egyptian revolution from the perspective of those who participated, their struggle for freedom against tremendous odds, their sacrifice, and the courage and ingenuity that allowed them to succeed. Using footage of the revolution as well as interviews with key organizers and participants, “Uprising” provides a behind-the scenes view of one of the most dramatic events of our generation. Many of those profiled were arrested, some were tortured, several were shot. All of them describe it as the most meaningful and rewarding event of their lives. The film explores the frustrations that had built for decades, the role of social media in unleashing the revolution, the youth and courage that changed a nation, and the implications for the future. Their success in forcing the downfall of the regime, one of the most significant foreign policy developments since the fall of the Berlin Wall, has changed the face of the Middle East and provided hope for millions of oppressed people across the world. The Egyptian revolution was unique, in its use of technology, in its youth, and in its scale, and it happened at the heart of a region that is especially important and fragile. Above all, it is a story of profound hope, of courage rewarded, of a people who in a spontaneous, peaceful eruption beat back a police state and threw off the shackles of decades of degradation and oppression.

"Innocence? How it could be? I will execute him in the square ...we will get him...all Egyptian People condemned him." "I want all people to live, but we must have our rights, the martyrs' rights, our sons who were killed, my son is my only male son, with four females, I wished for him from God, and he was killed by dogs....I came to Cairo from Alexandria and I will continue, I will not stop.
