Hosni Mubarak, President of Egypt will meet with George
W. Bush, President of the United States on Tuesday, March 5th, 2002.
While Mubarak meets with Bush, dozens of men sit in jail
in Egypt because of their alleged sexual orientation. More still face trials
in front of Egyptian State and Security courts with no right of appeal. And
even more are being lured off the internet, picked up on streets, arrested,
and tortured daily!
Al-Fatiha calls on people of conscience living in the
United States to email/phone/fax the Egyptian government on Tuesday, March 5th
and urge Egypt to respect the basic human rights of all of its citizens!
Call for the
immediate and unconditional release of all men who have been arrested
because of their actual or perceived sexual orientation.
Egypt to abide by the UN International Covenant of Civil and Political

violate basic international standards for fair trials.

respect freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
