Amnesty International Secretary General Salil Shetty and other organisations gave speeches in Trafalgar Square in support of the people of Egypt, and the wider Middle East and North Africa.

Thousands of people rallied in cities across the world today to demand respect for human rights in the Middle East and North Africa as part of a global day of action organized by Amnesty International.

We stand in defiance against all those who try to suppress the growing movement of people standing up for their rights, facing down injustice and offering hope for a better world.

    Egypt rocks!
