Message from Kifaya leader George Ishak to activists abroad

This was sent to activist Ahmed Zahran, who shared it with others helping set up the demos:

Greetings from Cairo;

On behalf of "The Egyptian Movement for Change" (Kifaya), its General Coordinating Committee, I wish to send greetings to you , your colleagues and all who are sharing in your campaign supporting judges and the release of the detainees.

Your actions and demonstrations in London and throughout the world are inspiring us here in Egypt. We in Kifaya strongly believe that with the collective efforts of all the Egyptians inside Egypt in the Diaspora we can build a new modern Egypt.

Best regards
George Ishak
