discussion on human rights conditions in Egypt  at National Press Club

On August 14, 2013, Egypt’s security forces used excessive military force to decimate nearly 1,000 protestors at al-Nahda Square and Rabaa al-Adawiya Square in Cairo. These 

acts of violence became the internationally recognized start to a repressive crackdown on human rights and civil liberties in Egypt under Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

In addition to those killed in the raids, several thousand more were injured. Human Rights Watch called the raid “one of the world’s largest killings of demonstrators in a single day in recent history.” 

In anticipation of the two-year anniversary of the Rabaa Massacre, Rabaa Story invites you to speak on a panel discussion on human rights conditions in Egypt under the el-Sisi regime since the Rabaa Massacre at the National Press Club on August 12 from 12-1:30pm. 

The panel will focus on what led to the incidents in Rabaa, the actions that took place that day, and the consequent human rights conditions in Egypt since the massacre.
