Pro-Democracy Alliance: Support Rights of All Detainees; Close Inhuman Aqrab Prison
Egypt’s Anti-Coup Pro-Legitimacy National Alliance solemnly salutes the steadfastness of the innocent detainees in all the prisons of Egypt, supports the legitimate hunger strike they started in barbaric Aqrab Prison, and demands the closure of the prison, in which squalid conditions, humiliation, torture and violations are beyond imagining.
We will not accept the continued torture and brutal persecution of the detainees and their families no matter what the charges are supposed to be. We do not call for any violence, sabotage or prison breaks. We do call on the world to force the oppressive executioners to close all the treacherous prisons in Egypt.
The demands of detainees of all orientations are clear: their freedom and the freedom of their beloved homeland Egypt. We will not accept this illegitimate coup which has been doing its worst to sabotage Egypt and impoverish its people.
The Alliance calls on all its supporters and all those who love and support freedom and justice, to stand steadfast in solidarity with all the families of the detainees in Egypt, without discrimination of color, race, creed, ideology or orientation.
The Alliance is proud of the resilience and steadfastness of the detainees and their families. Both they and their families, from all political orientations, with the steadfast President Mohamed Morsi, are the crown and honor of the homeland.
To patriotic Egyptians across the homeland…
Overlook all the differences. Unite and rally around the freedom of political prisoners, and the ouster of this mad military regime. Tell the whole world the importance of closing Aqrab Prison and all the treacherous prisons in Egypt, and holding accountable anyone who commits a crime in them against the detainees. No criminal will escape justice. We will not forget those who support the cause of junta jail detainees.
The collapse of the failing Sisi regime has become a matter of time. Patriotic possibilities and scenarios for homeland will include everything that respects the will of the people, away from any foreign interference. The decision to defeat the coup is purely Egyptian.
Take part in every campaign that calls for freedom of the homeland, and freedom of detainees of all political orientations. Support the interests of Egypt, and stand for the rights of Egyptians, who have suffered much more than a fair share of atrocities, and whose anger will be decisive. Save Egypt and all Egyptians from this brutal traitorous coup.
Victory for the Revolution
