Nonviolence Incorporation Releases Statement on 9th Revolution Anniversary in Egypt

Coinciding with the 9th anniversary of the revolution in Egypt on January 25, Nonviolence Incorporation published a statement that reads as follows:

“The Egyptians’ revolution was aimed at curbing the financial and administrative corruption of the ruling regime, securing and gaining public freedoms and achieving economic prosperity and improving the livelihood of people in the country. The Egyptian people rose up without exception and with the hope of a better future, achieving favorable conditions and ending the despotism, authoritarianism and the rule of dictatorship. Another demand of the Egyptian people was to enjoy a new environment and to enjoy democracy, pluralism, and participation in political and economic decision-making that had been denied for decades. Today, as Egypt’s modern-day history experiences many ups and downs, the Nonviolence Incorporation calls on the current leadership in Egypt to learn from the past and do their best to carry out their main responsibilities. Especially in the area of ​​human rights and freedoms, the current government should learn from the past mistakes. This human rights organization also calls on the Egyptian authorities to pursue realistic solutions, along with effective policies that seek to free political prisoners and the prisoners of conscience, and grant people the public and individual freedoms they were asking for. Another thing that should not be overlooked, is having a plan to improve the livelihoods of Egyptians in line with the growth and development program, which will ensure economic and social stability and security in the country.”
