SA Foreign Affairs! Warn South Africans about possible religious persecution in Egypt!
This petition had 27 supporters
We call upon the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) to protest to the Egyption Government about the draft law to criminalize atheism in Egypt, as reported at http://www.egypttoday.com/Article/2/39300/Egypt%E2%80%99s-parliament-takes-serious-actions-to-combat-atheism
We are a country that stands for religious freedom, as enshrined in our constitution. We cannot support tourism to a country where our tourists may be arrested and imprisoned for their sincerely held beliefs, or lack thereof.
We further request DIRCO, should the Egyptian Government not back off on the proposed legislation, to issue a travel advisory warning all South Africans that they may face religious persecution if they visit Egypt.
