World Students Condemn Military Junta Execution of Seven Young Egyptians
World Students Condemn Military Junta Execution of Seven Young Egyptians
Students around the world denounce the unjustified killing of seven young men by evidently blind junta justice.
Monday, May 18,2015 04:32

 Egyptian courts yesterday (Saturday) sentenced to death many honest patriotic Egyptians, including the elected President Mohamed Morsi and renowned scholar Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi (President of the World Federation of Muslim Scholars), without legal justification. Today (Sunday), the ruling military regime carried out the death penalty against seven of Egypt's finest revolutionary youth. These death sentences come in the context of settling scores with political opponents, and to punish the free and patriotic Egyptian people for the proud Revolution that inspired the whole world.

Faced with all the latest junta atrocities, we the student organizations signatories to this statement say as follows:

1. We prayed for peace for the ruling military regime's victims – the young people who were executed Sunday – we prayed for patience and solace for their families.

2. We strongly reject the farcical death sentences and insist they must be overturned immediately.

3. We fear that these unjust sentences will only push Egypt into further strife, tension and chaos at a time when it desperately needs concerted efforts – of all the people – to rise again towards real progress and development.

4. We call on all the free world and all human rights bodies and organizations that defend Arab and international human rights to shoulder their responsibilities with regard to these latest developments in Egypt.

5. We call upon all student organizations in the world, especially in the Arab and Muslim world to organize vigils, rallies and protest events and activities to show solidarity with Egypt's free anti-coup men and women.

Furthermore, we the student organizations signatory to this statement will act with local and international human rights bodies to force the ruling regime in Egypt to stop carrying out the unjust and irresponsible sentences against the sons and daughters of Egypt's Revolution.
