I started this blog for personal matters, to publish my art and literature, Now it seems I am turning this blog to a reporting media of Human abuse and Human being in wretched plight all around the World. I hope, We all citizen should rush to the crying and disturbing souls and help and support them. Protest and publicizing can help stop atrocities on public and bring safety measure to the mass under calamities.

When violence broke out in Tahrir Square an anti-Mubarak protester interviewed on TV said, “The difference between us and animals is that we have dignity.”

Protesters are demanding change but their right to do so peacefully is not being respected. They have been the target of violent attacks by pro-government supporters, while Egyptian authorities have failed to ensure protection of their right to freedom of expression and assembly.

Human rights activists and journalists have also been subjected to a systematic campaign of harassment and detention as part of a brutal crackdown by security forces that included the arrest of two Amnesty International staff. They spent two days in military custody before being freed.

Journalists and human rights activists must be able to carry out their work free from fear of intimidation or harassment. Detaining them cuts off vital access to information and escalates the risk of human rights violations taking place with impunity.

The Egyptian people must be able to make their voices heard and be able to organize peacefully. Vice President Omar Suleiman has been appointed to handle the situation.

Join us in calling on Vice President Omar Suleiman to stop the crackdown in Egypt.
