October 28: Panel on Repression in Egypt

On Wednesday, October 28th, Professor Emad Shahin will be speaking on escalating repression and the reconstruction of authoritarianism in Egypt at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Capitol Hill. Professor Shahin is a visiting professor of political science at Georgetown. Due to his persistent pro-democracy advocacy the Egyptian regime sentenced him to death in absentia in May of this year. He will be discussing the current political reality and its intersection with his personal story of persecution. The event is presented by St. Mark’s Church Mid-East Working Group and sponsored by the National Lawyers Guild Taskforce for U.S. Accountability in the Middle East and North Africa, National Lawyers Guild-DC Chapter, and Amnesty International. The talk will be on Wednesday, October 28th at 7 PM at 301 A Street SE, Washington, DC (in Capitol Hill). It is free and open to the public.
