action alert part 3 of 4: support democracy movement in egypt

Today and tomorrow, there will be events all over the world to show solidarity with the Egyptian democracy movement. See below for information about events in Canada.

If you - like me - cannot demonstrate in person, you can still support the movement by calling the Egyptian embassy in Ottawa and demanding that protests be allowed to continue without bloodshed. The 30-year dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak has never seen this scale of protest. I'm told there is a very real danger that the government may fire on demonstrators as night falls.

In Canada: Ottawa: 613.234.4931.
In the US: Washington DC: 202.895.5400.
In the UK: London: 44.020.7499.3304
In Ireland: Dublin: 353.01.660.6566
In Australia and New Zealand: Canberra: 61.(0)2.6273.4437
In South Africa: Pretoria: 27.(0)12.343.1590

You can also email Stephen Harper's office. Tell him Canadians stand for peace and democracy, something that clearly needs reminding. The government of Canada needs to speak up and support the Egyptian people. pm@pm.gc.ca
