You can help save two lives.
Our own John Greyson and Tarek Loubani have been detained in an Egyptian prison since August 16. They had stopped at a police station to ask directions, and were not permitted to leave.
Yesterday Egypt announced that they had outlawed the Muslim Brotherhood - who until they were overthrown had been the elected government of Egypt. Mass arrests and detentions are expected.
A citizen of France, detained in similar circumstances, was murdered in his jail cell.
Our government must act immediately, and forcefully, to get John and Tarek out of jail in Egypt.
So far, despite John Baird's assurances that steps are being taken, nothing has happened.
These two men are in imminent, serious risk of being killed.
Only our government can get them out.
Write today: to John Baird, Minister of Foreign affairs. Demand that he take immediate, effective action.
Tomorrow John and Tarek could be dead.
You would not forgive yourself for not writing today.
Please send me a copy of your email : firstname.lastname@example.org. And re-post this message.
phone: 613 990-7720
And send a copy to your own M.P.
Do it today, and tomorrow, and the next day until John and Tarek are home.
