Announcement regarding the protest against unprecedented attacks on Copts and all of Egypt.
The Australian Coptic Movement Association (ACM) is greatly disturbed by the rapid turn of events in Egypt and the senseless loss of life overall. Grossly under-reported is the fact that Egypt’s Coptic Christians are currently living under siege all over Egypt as the Muslim Brotherhood unleashes it terror after having launched widespread, coordinated attacks on Coptic Christians throughout Egypt.
Coptic churches, monasteries, schools and Coptic-owned properties have been destroyed in violent rampages by Islamists across the Country since the military crackdown. Scores of Copts have been killed and injured. Over 60 Churches and 11 Coptic Christian institutions have been looted and burned, including an orphanage. Coptic churches dating as far back as the fourth century have been destroyed. But the Copts are not the only target. In an effort to terrorize the entire country, the Muslim Brotherhood has also reportedly killed hundreds of policemen, stormed and tried to take over police stations, burned blood banks and damaged hospitals and public buildings, including the Malawy Museum in Al Menia Upper Egypt, where more than 1040 Ancient Egyptian artefacts were stolen.
They even attempted to burn the Alexandrian Library. They are intent on turning Egypt in a rogue state for their own agenda which is not in the interests of the majority of peace-loving Egyptians. The ACM will hold a protest this Saturday, 24 August 2013 to rally against the Muslim Brotherhood’s attacks targeting Coptic Christians and the people of Egypt in general.
We invite all peaceful members of the Australian public to join us as we stand in solidarity with the forgotten victims who are not being given the attention that they deserve.
Details as follows:
