Freedom and Democracy in Egypt sign now

Petition to No. 10 Downing Street
From: United Egyptians, London
Date: Sunday 6 February 2011
Background:
We, the United Egyptians, a group of concerned Egyptian citizens, are extremely distressed with the latest developments in Egypt. Since Tuesday 25th January, millions of ordinary Egyptians have taken to the streets to protest against the repressive 30 year dictatorship of President Hosni Mubarak and his regime. Under Egyptian Emergency Law, enacted in 1981, Mubarak has systematically denied basic social, political and human rights to the Egyptian people. The character of the current protests in Egypt has been a grassroots movement; based on a broad spectrum of the Egyptian population, from a variety of political and social backgrounds. Protests have been secular and inclusive of all communities in Egypt, regardless of faith or political affiliation, and represent the popular consensus for democratic reform.
Mubarak and the current regime have responded to calls for reform with intimidation, beatings and killings and have attempted to isolate the country from the international media. They have hindered communication and freedom of expression by disconnecting internet and mobile services nationwide. Security services and government sponsored thugs have attacked unarmed peaceful protesters and have used live ammunition against crowds of men, women and children causing large numbers of deaths and injuries. The protesters are now besieged and are being denied medical supplies and food.
While we firmly believe that it is the right and responsibility of the Egyptian people to make a stand for their rights, we believe that the international community must put pressure on the Egyptian regime in support of democracy and human rights.
We strongly urge the British government to take a firm stand, using its influence to press for:
1. The immediate cessation of all forms of violence and intimidation targeting the peaceful protesters across Egypt and the safeguarding of their right to peacefully gather and protest.
2. The unconditional resignation of Hosni Mubarak, effective immediately.
3. The establishment of a transitional governing body representing the protesters and opposition groups from across the Egyptian political spectrum.
4. The oversight by this governing body- within a predetermined period of time- the drafting of a new constitution and the facilitation of free, fair and inclusive elections that are independently monitored.
A full version of this petition will be delivered to No 10 Downing Street on Sunday 6 February 2011 at 2pm.
