On Tuesday, August 18, 2009, there will be a Coptic Coalition protest near the White House against Presiden't Mubarak's enthnic cleansing of the Coptic people. President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt is scheduled to meet with President Barack Obama that day.
Ever since President Mubarak took office in 1981, there have been many human rights atrocities against the native people of Egypt, the Copts. His regime has imposed Islamic law on the Copts which has resulted in many consequences for the Copts. There has been kidnapping and raping of women, forced conversion to Islam, extermination of the pigs of Coptic farmers, economic strangulation, and genocide since Mubarak took office. The American Coptic Union calls for an end to these atrocities; it must stop now.
We ask you all to join us to protest the tyranny of the Mubarak regime against the Copts.
When: Tuesday, August 18, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Where: 17th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue (across the street from the Blair House).
