The Arabic Network For Human Rights Information today resented the communique filed to the Public Prosecutor by a civil worker in a so-called human rights organization to stop displaying the Egyptian film “678”, which discusses sexual harassment in Egypt, for allegedly inciting girls for violence .

It is the second time that an organization claiming to be human rights’ would request to prohibit art and creativity. The organization called “ Justice And Development for Human Rights” filed a communique to the Public prosecutor to stop displaying the film “678” for trivial reasons. Several years before , another Egyptian organization “elKelma for Human Rights” filed a case to stop displaying the Egyptian film “ Baheb elsima” which addresses Christian extremism.

The Arabic Network is deeply surprised at the attitude of a human rights organization , patronizing the Egyptians and deciding for them which film to see , particularly that the film is currently displayed in the cinemas apart from seizing the right to expression and creativity provided by international conventions.

The Arabic Network said,” Seizing and controlling creativity are totally unacceptable . Works of art must enjoy total freedom in presenting ideas and stances . Citizens have the right to choose, watch and assess art with their own free will. No one has the right to decide and judge for them”.

“ We are used to having multiple parties all trying to seize and waste the right to creativity by filing political and religious Hesba cases. It is interesting that human rights organizations would join the neo actio popularis group”, added ANHRI.
