Egypt: 10 steps for human rights: Amnesty International's human rights manifesto for Egypt
In parliamentary elections beginning on 28 November, Egyptians will ask whether the demands and promises of the “25 January Revolution” will finally be fulfilled. Those contesting seats in the People’s Assembly have the chance to break a cycle of repression that has continued for three decades under the state of emergency and that has eroded the rule of law. Real rights reform must begin now. In this document, Amnesty International sets out 10 pledges for candidates to show they will fight for human rights in the next parliament.
