Azza Suleiman and North Africa

At our March meeting the group decided to support the case of Azza Suleiman and to focus on North Africa. 

In December 2011 49-year-old Azza Suleiman attended a large protest near Tahrir Square. As she started to leave, she saw a group of soldiers violently beat and strip another female protestor.

Even then they did not stop. 

Their attack was so vicious it left Azza with a fractured skull and impaired memory. Azza lodged a formal complaint but to date no one has been held accountable for this violence.
