VOP 2014-03-26: Ehab Lotayef

The Egyptian Military Junta and What’s Next for Egypt and Gaza
This week we are interviewing Ehab Lotayef, an Egyptian Canadian poet and activist. We talk with him about the shocking developments in Egypt especially the recent 529 death sentences handed down by the Egyptian military junta, as well as their recent moves against the Gaza Strip and their abusive treatment of international supporters of the Gazan population. He also updates us on the progress of the Gazas Ark, and explains the objectives of “Egyptians worldwide for democracy and Justice“, of which he is a member.
Our final music is by the late legendary Egyptian singer, Sheik Imam, entitled Egypt Rise Up. We dedicate this song to the progressive forces in Egypt and across the Arab world, for whom Sheik Imam remains a beacon of inspiration.
