On the third anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution, we affirm our solidarity with all those Egyptians still fighting to win bread, freedom and social justice.

We stand with Egyptian activists who have been shot at, assaulted, arrested and imprisoned for defying the new 'anti protest' laws and the military's brutal clampdown.

We stand with Egyptian workers occupying their factories to demand the right to work, like the steel workers of Helwan. We stand with all Egyptians who have organized strikes and protests to demand decent pay and dignity at work.

We stand with Egypt's healthworkers, teachers, civil servants and transport workers who are resisting privatization and austerity to defend public services for all.

We call on the Egyptian government to respect Egyptians' rights to organize, strike and protest, for the immediate release of all political prisoners and an end the repression. We condemn the pervasive use of sexual violence by the security forces and military against protesters.

We call on the Canadian government to cease all forms of practical, financial or diplomatic co-operation with the Egyptian government which could aid the repression of Egyptian citizens, including imports of arms, tear gas or other material and assistance with police or military training.
