Freedom and Human rights for Ibrahim Halawa

Free Ibrahim and let him return to Ireland to be with his family.

Why is this important?

Ibrahim is currently on hunger strike after been detained at the age of seventeen for peaceful protesting. He is now twenty-one years of age and is being held in awful conditions in Egypt. He is an Irish citizen and needs our support.
His next court appearance is in March and the more pressure given to the Egyptian government by people who care about breach of human rights the better!
Now, Ibrahim's trial has been put back 19 times while he spends his youth in prison impacting his physical and mental health.
Amnesty International has established that Ibrahim Halawa is a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression and assembly.
We urge the Egyptian authorities to release Ibrahim from his unlawful detention for expressing his right to free speech.
Ibrahim's detainment without trial is more than deeply upsetting and dis-appointing-Factually it is a clear breach of human rights and it is long past time that the Irish government need to act on behalf of Ibrahim Halawa.


Reasons for signing

  • Ibrahim went to school with my daughter Orlagh and they sat the Leaving Certificate the same year. This Summer Orlagh will graduate from University while Ibrahim has spent the last 4 years in prison in Egypt. Time for this young man to come home ❤
  • This man is an Irish citizen and I'm certain that if he was a more "Irish-looking" Irish citizen the government would be making much more of an effort to bring him home.
  • I signed because let the brotherhood look after their own
