Activists in the United States Show Solidarity with Egyptian Protesters

February 2, 2011

While millions of people are protesting in Egypt, an increasing number of activists also take to the streets in the U.S. to demand dignity and basic human rights for the Egyptian people. Find below some images from our rally at the Egyptian Embassy in Washington, DC.

Protecting the right to demonstrate peacefully is a duty. We welcome the army’s commitment not to fire on protesters, after we have repeatedly raised concerns about the excessive use of force by security forces during the demonstrations – Claudio Cordone, AI Senior Director
