3001 Pacific Avenue (at Baker St.). near the Marina District
In the past weeks, labor and community action centered in the industrial city of Mahalla, Egypt have spread demands for better living and working conditions, and calls for an end to the Mubarak dictatorship to many other sites across the country. In the state repression that has followed, at least two people have been killed, and over 800 have been detained. A crackdown on local and foreign journalists has also ensued.
There will be a solidarity action at the Egyptian Consulate in San Francisco this Friday, April 18th, at 10am, 3001 Pacific Avenue (at Baker St.). The action lasts two hours: 10am to noon.
Please also take a moment to call, fax and/or email the consul to register your concerns. A sample letter and contact information is included on the website:
