Free Alaa

Egyptian blogger Alaa Abd El-Fatah has been arrested during a pro-democracy demonstration and is being held by Egyptian security services. Egypt is one of the largest recipients of US foreign aid donations of any country in the world. If this is the sort of thing that the Egyptian government will do to citizens engaged in peaceful and democratic program, then the US government should not continue to bankroll such activities.

The address for the Egyptian Embassy is:

The Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt
3521 International Ct. NW
Washington DC 20008
Phone (202) 895 5400
Fax (202) 244 5131
(202) 244 4319

It’s time that Mubarak’s government knows that this sort of activity will result in immediate suspension of all foreign aid. Writing your Senator and/or Representative wouldn’t hurt either.
