Standing up for Mozn Hassan

Stop targeting and harassing Mozn Hassan

On 27 June 2016, the General Prosecutor ordered a travel ban against Mozn Hassan, in relation to the case commonly known as “the NGO Foreign Funding Case”. In 2011 the Egyptian government began to look into the foreign funding and registration of civil society organisations under Law 84, a draconian law which imposes unduly restrictions on civil society operations. Travel bans are routinely invoked by the government to suppress dissenting voices and attempt to silence the women’s rights movement in Egypt, amongst others.

Sign this petition, launched by Nazra for Feminist Studies, to ask the Egyptian government to stop the targeting and harassment of Mozn Hassan and all others due to their legitimate and peaceful human rights advocacy.
