You can't silence Egypt

To interim President Mansour and government ministers:

As citizens concerned about our hard-won freedoms we call on you to revoke the new protest law so that Egyptians can maintain freedom of expression and freedom of assembly. We believe the government has the right and obligation to protect its citizens, but this law threatens to criminalize the legitimate and free actions of the Egyptian people.

You can't silence Egypt

The Egyptian government just passed a law that criminalises peaceful protest and authorises the police to violently disperse public meetings. It’s up to us to stop it before there is more bloodshed.

In the last three years people’s protest has been the driving force of huge change. We know if enough of us come together we can get this outrageous law revoked. Let’s not let them gag people now.

This law doesn’t help Egypt, it’s a law to silence everyone. People have sacrificed too much, to surrender the freedom to gather in the streets. Let’s build a massive petition -- sign on the right to tell interim President Mansour and government ministers to revoke the gag law now and then share this with everyone.
