Drop the Death Sentence for 529 Egyptians!
In a shocking move, an Egyptian court has sentenced 529 supporters of former President Mohamed Morsi to death for the killing of a single police officer. Codepink Women for Peace urges for help to prevent this mass slaughter from happening: Tell the Egyptian government to lift the outrageous death sentences for the 529 convicted Egyptians!
Since overthrowing the Morsi government in July 2013, the Egyptian military has killed over 1,000 people and jailed over 16,000, and is clearly targeting people based on political affiliation. Amnesty International has called this the largest group death sentence anywhere in the world in recent years.
