Demo in Solidarity with Ibrahim Eissa

Around 200 journalists, freedom fighters, and activists gathered on the stairs outside the Journalists' Syndicate in Downtown Cairo on September 29th to protest the sentencing of Ibrahim Eissa to two months in prison. The protest criticized President Mubarak and his earlier pledges (announced in the Year 2004) to the effect that no more journalists were to be arrested for "publication offenses."
