Global Day of action - Egypt and the wider Middle East & North Africa (Chicago/ USA)
Amnesty International, partner organizations and Egyptian youth activists are organising public rallies across the United States in solidarity with the Egyptian people and to call for permanent human rights reforms in Egypt. We will also send a clear message to the US government that now is not the time for settling on human rights compromises and will urge President Obama to call on Egyptian authorities to lift the state of emergency and other human rights restrictions.
Join us in Chicago on Saturday 12th February as we rally in solidarity and defiance with the people of Egypt and the wider Middle East & North Africa.
We stand with them in their demand for an end to the crackdown, for their freedom, their basic human rights and immediate reform.
We stand in defiance against all those who try to suppress the growing movement of people standing up for their rights, facing down injustice and offering hope for a better world.
Please wear black, white or red, the colours of the Egyptian flag.
For those that can't make it to the rally, you can take part online, find out more at: http://www.protectthehuman.com/actions/in-solidarity-in-defiance/main
