Stop the repression in Egypt - Stop Sisi's visit to London.

القاتل فى لندن - مظاهرة ضد زيارة سيسي

 

Two women in the foreground were worried that if their identity became known as participators in the anti-Sisi protest, it might harm their relatives in Egypt so they covered their faces..

 

They were part of a demonstration in Whitehall, London, outside the British prime minister's residence in Downing Street against the visit of Egypt's president Sisi to London on 4th November 2015.

 

A banner (left) reminds people that if this protest was in Egypt protesters would face arrest, injury or detention in Egypt's notorious prisons where torture, TB and rape are just a few of the problems inmates will face.

 

Britain invests more in Egypt than any other country with companies like British Petroleum and Vodafone and British arms exporters benefiting from Cameron's cosy red carpet relationship with Egypt's brutal dictator.
