Amnesty International a Egyptian Front For Human Rights Vás zvou na promítání egyptského dokumentu "Seeds of Change: Revisiting Egypt's April 6 activists" o hnutí April 6 Youth Movement s následnou diskuzí o lidských právech v Egyptě s Kareemem Tahou do kavárny Black Box Café. Akce proběhne v anglickém jazyce.

Zároveň představíme případ Amnesty International, nespravedlivě uvězněného Egypťana Alaa Abdel Fattaha, kterého brněnská skupina Amnesty nedávno "adoptovala" (více na www.brnoamnesty.cz/free-alaa). Promluvíme i o problematice zákona, kvůli kterému se propuštění vězni musí po několik let hlásit každý večer na policejní stanici, kde stráví noc.

Organizace Egyptian Front for Human Rights rovněž představí 5 případů uvězněných členů hnutí April 6 a petici proti předběžnému zadržování lidí z politických důvodů.

VSTUP ZDARMA

We are pleased to invite you for screening of the Egyptian documentary movie about April 6 Youth Movement - "Seeds of Change: Revisiting Egypt's April 6 activists" - and discussion with Kareem Taha - the member of April 6 Youth Movement.

Amnesty International Brno will introduce their new adopted case of unjustly imprisoned activist Alaa Abdel Fattah: www.brnoamnesty.cz/free-alaa

The Egyptian Front will introduce five cases of unjustly imprisoned members of the April 6 Youth Movement and a petition against precautionary detention for political participation in Egypt.

The April 6 Youth Movement played a key role in ending Hosni Mubarak’s twenty-nine-year stint as Egypt’s president. The protests escalated to calls for a national strike, and on April 6, 2008, thousands of Egyptians flooded the streets. They were met with violent repression by police forces, resulting in four deaths and 400 arrests. Galvanized by the success of the Tunisian revolution, the April 6 Youth Movement’s leaders announced a day of action: January 25, 2011. The subsequent protests, which centered on Cairo’s Tahrir Square, ultimately toppled Mubarak’s regime and led to a transfer of power to the Egyptian military. According to Mohamad Adel, a founding member of the April 6 YouthMovement, the group is now focused on “the building of the nation and (exerting) pressure on government and society in order to complete the process of democratic reform in Egypt.”

Today, many political activists are still being subjected to police surveillance measures for their political activism. More than 60,000 people are unjustly imprisoned and the released activists are under the precautionary detetntion. This is measure which aim to restrict the probability of their participation in social work or in the public sphere, without considering the effect on their personal lives or the chronic feeling of threat to their personal safety.
