Event: COP27 and Human Rights Solidarity with Egyptian Prisoners of Conscience

Major climate organisations in Scotland and Britain are calling for a week of solidarity with Egyptian prisoners of conscience in order to highlight the Sisi regime’s horrific abuses of human rights. Climate Justice Coalition, Friends of the Earth Scotland and Stop Climate Chaos Scotland are hosting an online meeting to kick off the week’s activities on 27 September.

The organisers say:

Egypt’s track record on human rights is horrifying. Tens of thousands of activists, many of whom are students and teachers, are arbitrarily detained and routinely tortured. The state has engaged in massacres, extra judicial killings, and forced disappearances. Against this backdrop of repression, and increasingly visible climate breakdown, world leaders are set to meet once to negotiate responses to the climate emergency. Can participating in the climate talks leverage opportunities to support Egyptian civil society? How can we build together for human rights and climate justice centred solutions to the climate crisis?
