Cairo's Sit-in, "For Egypt's Free Press and Independent Judiciary"

Cairo's Sit-in tomorrow March 16 at Tahrir Square, 6 PM.

The sit-in is called in support of an independent judiciary system and a free press.

Egypt is not enjoying an independent judiciary system until this day. Some honorable Egyptian judges who are the elected members of the Cairo and Alexandria Club of Judges (Association) are going through one of the most important battles in Egypt's history. An independent judiciary means free home. Show your support and love to Egypt and show up tomorrow.

The executive power in Egypt is in full control of the judiciary system and judges. Free judges mean democracy, free and fair elections and justice to all Egyptians.

Egyptian journalists can be jailed for expressing themselves freely or for exposing corrupt cases. Free press means a new Egypt that enjoys transparency and integrity.

A law was promised two years ago to free the Egyptian journalists is kept in the drawers and journalists are still given sentences. Most recent cases are jailing sentences to journalists from the independent Al Masry Al youm and Alfagr papers.

In solidarity with the Egyptian Judges Club in Alexandria and Cairo and the free journalists to call for an independent Judiciary in Egypt away from the grip of executive authority and for the annulling the law that stipulates jailing journalists if proven guilty for exercising their freedom of expression.

There is no free country without a free press and independent Judiciary system. FFE

I wish you all the best tomorrow, and hope that the demo can attract some attention to the problem.

Being far away from Egypt, I can only support by lightning a candle in the window, but I'll do that for sure.

All the best
Adrian

I wrote a letter to the Editor of 4 major USA newspapers to help shed more focus on the situation in Egypt. My prayers are with you.
