Every year remembering Maspero becomes more important. Impunity continues fiercely and sectarianism robs citizens of property, family members, safety, and their basic right to life. This anniversary remembers a massacre in Egypt, but I cannot help but think of Syria, Iraq, and each and every country in our region that is caving under the hatred of sectarianism.
In DC this Thursday, October 9: Candlelight Vigil for the Maspero Massacre Anniversary
