The Amnesty website has a blog on Egypt from January that might be of interest to group members. Especially relevant after the recent informative and interesting talk at the recent group meeting from Ann Marcus, Amnesty International UK’s volunteer Egypt Country Coordinator. The blog post was written as the result of a publication of an Amnesty International report on Egypt that marks 3 years since the 2011 revolution.
