Release Human Rights Activist to the Safety of His Family

Target: Magdy Abdel Ghaffar, Minister of the Interior, Egypt

Goal: Return abducted human rights activist to his family.

A  human rights activist in Egypt is feared to have been forcibly “disappeared.” Ezzat Ghonim, director of the NGO Egyptian Coordination for Rights and Freedoms, has gone missing. He is feared to have been abducted by Egyptian authorities. He is the latest in a string of activists to have gone missing in the nation.

Ghonim disappeared after work and his family has not seen him since. Calls for help to Egypt’s government have gone unanswered. Many fear that Ghonim is being tortured and abused by authorities simply for taking a stand against authoritarian powers and for equal rights.

Freedom of speech and expression are under attack in Egypt and men and women are paying a horrible price. Activists should not be arrested, tortured, or killed by their own government. Sign the petition to demand that Ghonim be released and returned to the safety of his family.


Dear Minister Ghaffar,

Well-known human rights activist Ezzat Ghonim has gone missing. He went to work and never returned. His family fears he may have been forcibly disappeared, a common occurrence in your nation. His whereabouts, his health, and his condition are unknown.

A war on freedom of speech and equal rights wages in your nation. Ghonim’s family deserves to know his fate. They deserve to have him returned to them. Activists should not be arrested, tortured, and murdered for their beliefs. I demand that Ghonim be released to the safety of his family immediately.

Bring thyself to account ere thou art summoned to a reckoning, on the Day when no man shall have strength to stand for fear of God, the Day when the hearts of the heedless ones shall be made to tremble … Baha’i Faith Writings
    Please do the right thing and let this mans family know where he is and his condition. Allow him to return home to them. Thank you.
