Supporting Egyptian people's struggle for freedom and justice

Global Europe

Recent events in Egypt, which have killed dozens of people, demonstrate the desire of the Egyptian people for democracy, freedom of speech and a regime change.

Through this widely observed movement, the Egyptian people call for social justice, economic measures to pull them out of poverty, to fend off hunger and an end to speculation on food prices and corruption by this regime which has been in place for 30 years.

We salute the courage of the Egyptian people who are braving threats and repression. The answer to these legitimate aspirations can not be force and violence, but a free and democratic State which responds to this desire for freedom.
