Another event is planned in London for international solidarity with democracy activists in Egypt. I received a press release from the British National Union of Journalists, calling for a demo, outside the BBC World Service building, Bush House, Aldwych, London, from 12 noon to 1pm on Monday 5 June. The press release denounced the attacks on reporters in Cairo, and mentioned specifically Dina Samak and Dina GameelÂ of the BBC Arabic Service, who were assaulted on Thursday May 25.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
