Sign the Petition.. (THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY IS TURNING BLIND EYE ON EGYPTIAN CIVIL SOCIETY)

Dear colleagues in I4C..

We are a group of Egyptian and regional NGOs, members of MENA hub / I4C.

Currently we are Implementing (Unmask Them) campaign, this campaign is supported by hub Afrique.

The Campaign’s Demands are:

1. We call on the Egyptian government to repeal Law 70) Which kills civil action (in accordance with its domestic and international obligations to protect freedom of association.

2. We call upon the Egyptian government to drop all existing criminal investigations into NGOs.

3. Additionally, we call on Egypt’s international partners providing foreign assistance and economic aid, such as the United States and the European Union, to use their influence to urge the Egyptian government to allow NGOs to fulfill their function within civil society.

4. Moreover, international bodies such as the United Nations and United Nations Human Rights Council, and their member states, should use their positions as mediators within the international community to hold Egypt accountable for legislation that muzzles civil society to such a severe degree.

We ask you to join and support us by signing the petition, that will be submitted to the United Nations Human Rights Council, and the European Parliament.
