Washington, DC. - December 18, 2014 - /CNewswire/ -- Coptic Solidarity announces the launch of an advocacy campaign seeking the immediate and unconditional release of Mohammed Hegazi. Mr. Hegazi -- who goes by his adopted Christian name Bishoy Armeya Boulos -- has been the subject of numerous spurious charges and sentences, prolonged detentions and threats to his and his family’s lives. He has been targeted for the mere attempt in 2007 to reflect his personal conversion by applying to formerly change the religious status from Muslim to Christian on his state-issued identification card.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Coptic Solidarity condemns in the strongest terms the draft law for community policing, which through a misplaced effort to provide security threatens the further imposition of Islamists' values over Egyptian citizens. If promulgated by President El-Sisi, this legislation would put at risk fundamental human and individual rights of all Egyptians, and obliterate the freedoms gained through the ousting of the Muslim Brotherhood regime.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Three years ago, the Egyptian armed forces unleashed a violent attack against Coptic protesters, resulting in the deaths of at least 28 individuals.

We support the overall progress he has brought to Egypt and recognize the plethora of issues he has to address.
