SUBJECT: International support for Egyptian activist Asmaa Mahfouz
Asmaa Mahfouz, 26-year-old Egyptian activist, has been accused of
"insulting the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) and
calling for armed operations against the military and the judiciary."
If convicted she faces three years in jail.
Mafouz is widely identified with the Egyptian uprising. Her vlog urging
people to protest in Tahrir Square is said to have “sparked the
revolution.” [See www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgjIgMdsEuk.] A threat to
Mafouz, of course, is meant to intimidate all those who have and would
follow her example.
