End Violent Torture of Egyptian Citizens

Target: Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, President of Egypt

Goal: End the violent torture of Egyptian civilians by police and government authorities.

Police and other authorities in Egypt have been given permission by the president to torture protesters and dissidents. Torture is used as a “national security” measure and is used to force victims to confess to crimes that they didn’t even commit.

Beatings, electric shock, and even sexual abuse have been used by authorities. These severe actions have prompted Human Rights Watch to accuse the nation, which has laws against torture, of crimes against humanity.

Egypt is breaking its own domestic and international human rights laws. Meanwhile, the president of Egypt is allowing this torture to go on. Sign the petition and demand Egypt end its brutal torture of civilians.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President el-Sisi,

A recent investigation by Human Rights Watch has found rampant, systematic torture in your country. Citizens are being beaten, shocked, and even raped by police and other authorities in the name of “national security.”

You are allowing this torture to go on. I demand that you bring this torture to an end. You’re breaking domestic and international human rights laws. You must protect your citizens, not allow them to be tortured and killed.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Human rights should be inforced in Egypt!

  2. This is so horrifying. I feel terrible for the poor people there, who can’t even speak their minds anymore. Seems like the middle east is getting worse and worse.
    I sincerely hope that sometime you people will do a petition for Palestinian prisoners in Israel, including CHILD prisoners as young as age 12, who are often tortured and sexually assaulted (this has been documented). This is a violation of international law.
