End military trials of civilians in Egypt
This action is now paused. We are keeping a close eye on developments in Egypt and when we think mass action can make a real difference we will re-open this action.
Military courts can’t deliver justice
Since the uprising in 2011, military forces have tried 12,000 and convicted an estimated 8,000 ordinary Egyptians for crimes like 'thuggery' or 'breaking curfew'. Sentences range from a few months to years in prison. Some people have even sentenced people to death under these trials.
Egypt’s military courts violate basic human rights, like the right to a fair trial and the right to appeal to a higher tribunal.
