Over 1000 sign statement against mass death sentences

Over 1000 people from 50 countries have signed the statement launched by Egypt Solidarity in response to the mass death sentences imposed by Egypt’s military regime on alleged supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood. On Monday 24 March, a court in Minya province condemned 529 people to death for the murder of a police officer in August 2013 after a trial which lasted just 45 minutes, where defence lawyers were not allowed to speak.

They include trade union leaders, from the General Secretary of the Bakers, Food and Allied Workers Union in the UK, Ian Hodson to Mduduzi Gina, Deputy General Secretary of the Trade Union Congress of Swaziland, MPs from Die Linke party in Germany, academics, journalists, and hundreds of rank and file trade unionists and activists.
