Solidarity Message to Egyptian Website

Against the Current, No. 190, September/October 2017

The Editors

[The following message was sent to the editors of the recently banned Egyptian website “in-red” ( This repressive act by the al-Sisi regime is yet another backlash against the democratic hopes of the 2011 revolution.]

AS EDITORS OF the U.S. bimonthly publication, Against the Current, we protest the shutting down of the Egyptian website “in-red.” It is an independent website that publishes necessary analyses and dialogue about the Middle Eastern region and the world. The world needs more dialogue, particularly dealing with the politics and culture of the Middle East.

We solidarize with the brave editors of the “in red” website and call upon the Egyptian regime to reverse its ruling.

No to censorship! End the ban on “in-red”!
