In this French language interview, Sérénade Chafik discusses the situation in Egypt in the year since the fall of the Mubarak regime.
Speaking after her contribution to a Council of Europe Women’s Day discussion, the Committee of the Injured of the Egyptian Revolution spokeswoman (photo) outlines the role played by “people power” in the revolution, the new military crackdown and the support that European organisations can offer to Egyptians to complete political change in the country.
“There are 13,000 political prisoners. There has never been as many in Egypt,” she says. “Fascism must stop. We want to achieve our objectives which are legitimate and universal – liberty, dignity and social justice.”
