EOHR calls for saving the souls of Mahala’s workers

July 22nd, 2012 by Editor

The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) expresses great worry for the attack of Samoli Spinning and Weaving Company, when unknown persons attacked the workers.

On July 21, 2012, following the protest the workers went to the mosque. Suddenly, unknown people started random shooting. One of the workers died and three of them were injured while protesting in front of the company headquarters. EOHR called upon the Egyptian government to save people’s souls and rights.

EOHR followed up the protest that continued for the second week, especially in front of Samoli Spinning and Weaving Company in Mahala Kobra, following abducting the annual days off from the workers’ salaries.

In this regard, EOHR confirms absolute solidarity with the workers and their legal demands. The workers called for their civil rights for months and received nothing but promises, which led them to organizing the long sit-in. EOHR calls for immediate investigation on the murder of the worker Ahmed Hosni and the injuries of the others.

Mr. Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR, stresses on the responsibility of the Egyptian government for protecting the souls of the Egyptian protesters in general and the Egyptian workers in Mahala in particular. Civil protesters should enjoy enough security according to the international standards of human rights.
