Remember life before 25Jan
For 18 years we’ve not just defended the rights of all Egyptians against tyranny and inequality; we’ve also been bearing witness.

It’s a screenshot of #life_before_25Jan for the vast majority of Egyptians.
In the intro we called it “the collective testimony of the Forum for Independent Human Rights NGOs on the human rights situation in Egypt... the products of nearly a quarter century of human rights advocacy and activism, both on the ground and in the legal arena.”
