Vis solidaritet med de egyptiske aktivistene

Posted by Fredsvenn den februar 8, 2011

Demonstrasjonene i Egypt kan gjøre slutt på 3 tiår med undertrykkende styre og skape frihet og demokrati i Egypt.

Etter en lang og stille periode har nå mer enn 100.000 egyptere endelig fått nok og tat til gaten for å vise sin protest i mange av Egypts byer. det de krever er:

1. Fighting Corruption, Egypt is one of the most corrupt countries
according to Transparency International’s 2010 Worldwide Corruption
Perceptions ranking of countries (ranked 98th)

2. Poverty, More than 40 million Egyptian citizens are living under 2
dollars a day and there are more than one million children living on the

3. Democracy, Egypt has the same President for the last 28 years. There
have been no free elections or legal parliament. It has also been governed
under an edict of ’emergency law’ since 1967, with the exception of 18
months around 1980

4. Freedom of expression, Egyptians are not able to organise peaceful
protests because the police and the army are controlled by the Egyptian

5. Health, Egypt has one of the highest levels of infections of
hepatitis C and cancer worldwide.

6. Education, more than 30 million Egyptians can not read or write.

Disse menneskene både trenger og fortjener vår støtte i deres kamp mot regime som brker politi for å undertrykke og torturere dem. Frihet krever offer og kamp. Deres kamp er fylt med fare, men vi kan hjelpe dem med å lindre deres frykt ved å vise det egyptiske regime om at de vil bli holdt ansvarlig.

Igår fjernet Tunisia en barbarisk diktator. Idag er dagen for Egypt, og imorgen er det dags for å vrake alle diktatorer hvor hen de befinner seg.


Dear friends in the Middle East and North Africa,

The demonstrations in Egypt this week could be a critical turning point away from three decades of repressive rule and towards democracy.

So far the government has responded with tear gas and mass arrests, and the Minister of Interior has outlawed public gatherings. But the Tunisian people have shown us what is possible when determined citizens raise their voices together. And now the government’s resolve is weakening — even the Prime Minister is supporting the right to peaceful protest, and Mubarak’s family has fled the country.

The situation could change within days or even hours, and what happens next depends of all of us. Let’s stand with those on the streets and build a deafening outcry against rampant corruption and political repression, and for democratic reform. Sign the emergency petition to President Mubarak and forward this message widely:

Stand with the people of Egypt

For thirty years, the Egyptian people have experienced crackdowns on the free press and increasing limitations on their freedom of assembly and ability to participate in politics. Hundreds of people were beaten and detained during the 2010 Parliamentary elections as the government blatantly intimidated the opposition and incrementally changed laws to tighten its grip on power. This week more than 500 protesters have been detained across the country, and the government has tried to block access to Facebook, Twitter and other websites.

But the Egyptians are undeterred and across the country are peacefully trying to reclaim the government to serve the interests of the people. And recent events in Tunisia show if enough of us stand up, this radical change is possible.

Let’s show the government that peaceful people are tired of the entrenched regime’s corruption and repression, and that the movement is too large to break with intimidation and violence. Let’s join the protesters and call for reform now.

Now is the time to stand firm and pursue our dreams of freedom, peace, and prosperity.

With hope,

Stephanie, Pascal, Alice, Rewan, Ricken, Morgan, Graziela and the rest of the Avaaz team

PS. Avaaz will work with internet activists to provide proxy servers to get Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks back up and ensure that critical messages of reform and real-time updates can reach the widest possible audience across Egypt and around the world.
