11 FEBRUARY 2011 THE REVOLUTION IN EGYPT

Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights congratulates the Egyptian people with a victory in fighting for the democracy and the resignation of President Hosni Mubarek.
The experts of Association believe that the Egyptian people could dispel the myth about the impossibility of democracy in Muslim countries, as well as the myth that using repressive machine can hold power.
Events in Egypt once again proved that it does not matter such brutal and corrupt regimes, it does not matter nor how tyranny tries to keep its power, if the regime is not democratic and does not protect human rights and freedoms, it will inevitably collapse. The fact that these events took place in the heart of the Arab world shows that the processes of democratic development are global and are the inevitable and certainly other totalitarian regimes will fall sooner or later.
Events in Egypt - the historical moment demonstrates that united people and real civil society can determine political regime and future of country.

18.01.2011 Letter of solidarity with the Tunisian Lawyers

Dear Colleagues,
The European Association of Lawyers for Democracy and World Human rights (ELDH) is gravely concerned about the excessive violence of Tunisian security forces against Tunisian lawyers as well as other protesters. ELDH condemns all unjustified attacks on lawyers and their arbitrary arrests. ELDH fully supports the general strike which has been announced for Thursday by the Tunisian Bar Association in protest over the brutality of Tunisian Security forces against lawyers.
ELDH also condemns the ongoing crackdown by Tunisian authorities on a wave of protests sparked by the attempted suicide of a young fruit seller who later died of his injuries.
Tunisians must be allowed to express their grievances and freely protest. ELDH is shocked by the reports that more then 50 protesters have been killed by the Tunisian police and the army.
According to Amnesty International Tunisia has a sad reputation of violation of human rights. The rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly are curtailed, and journalists, lawyers and human rights activists are prosecuted and harassed. There are reports of arbitrary arrests, torture and other ill-treatment of detainees.

ELDH demands the immediate and unconditional release of all arrested lawyers in Tunisia
the compensation of all material and immaterial damages
the prosecution of the accountable officials
the respect of human rights by the Tunisian Government in particular of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which has been signed and ratified by Tunisia
In solidarity
Thomas Schmidt
ELDH Secretary General
