Recently, the foreign affairs minister John Baird visited Egypt, and before this visit, organizations such as the Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy, the National Council of Canadian Muslims, Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East, as well as Amnesty International expressed concerns in open statements and letters adressed to Mr Baird. Talks with the so-called Egyptian “Interim government”
that resulted from last year’s military coup could be constructed as an endorsment of the human rights violations that have occured over the past few months in Egypt. CKUT’s Amelie Phillipson spoke with Samaa Elibyari, a member of the Egyptian Canadian Coalition for Democracy, and also the former host of CKUT’s Arab and Muslim affairs show Caravan.
