Ahmed Said


Denying my connection to the Revolution is not a solution, so long as people remain in prison as punishment for having dreamed of freedom.

Ahmed Said is an independent human rights defender, poet and surgeon who provided medical treatment to those attacked by security forces during the 2011 Egyptian Revolution.


A significant crackdown on civil society in Egypt has been taking place since 2014. HRDs face an extremely challenging situation due to restrictions imposed on civil society and peaceful public gatherings and protests, travel bans, the arrest and sentencing of HRDs, bloggers, journalists and protesters, as well as an ongoing smear campaign against human rights groups.
