Campaigning for human rights in Egypt

27 January 2021

UCU is supporting the campaign for the release of political prisoners in Egypt who have been jailed for their activities in support of workers' rights.

Egypt Solidarity Initiative has background information on six cases here.

UCU continues to campaign for Truth for Giulio Regeni, a Cambridge PhD student who was murdered while doing research in Egypt in 2016. On the fifth anniversary of Giulio's disappearance, Cambridge Amnesty Group - with the support of Cambridge UCU - hosted an online vigil for Giulio.

You can watch the Facebook video of the commemoration below, which includes a speech from UCU president, Vicky Blake:
