CAIRO – 9 November 2022: Several protests were held, Wednesday in different cities by Egyptians in solidarity with MP Amr Darwish after being removed from a press conference at COP27 for elaborating his questions to activist Sanaa Seif.



The protests were held in Sharm El Sheikh, London and Madrid. During their solidarity protests, the participants held pictures of Alaa Abdel-Fattah, who was proved to be involved in incitement against the police and armed forces.



They expressed their rejection to what happened to MP Amr Darwish, stressing that “removing a participant from a press conference by guards is not acceptable”  




A number of Egyptian activists and politicians also have launched a petition to the Secretary-General of the United Nations to reject the "hijaking" of the climate change summit by some civil society organizations who used COP27 sessions to serve goals that has nothing to do with environmental issues.

Egyptian MP Amr Darwish was demanded out from a press conference for Sanaa Abdel Fattah in Sharm El sheikh, Tuesday after commenting on her speech regarding her brother’s Alaa Abdel Fattah situation.


In statements to ET, Amr said that “after commenting on Sanaa’s allegations, she didn’t reply, and one of the conference’s organizers came asking me out, and that she is not going to reply because the conference has ended, which was not true.”


“Sanaa demands freedom of opinion, but she prevents it from others,” MP Darwish said.


Darwish who is a member of the Coordination's Committee of Party's Youth Leaders and Politicians [CPYP] added that “Sanaa was trying to turn her brother's case through her statements from a criminal prisoner to a political prisoner” and when I started to comment on her statements like another participant at the conference she denied answering, and said that she is not going to reply to ‘Egyptian authorities’.

 “I was not representing any kind of authorities inside the conference”, Darwish said, explaining that “addressing the Egyptian authorities has its own channels”.

Darwish noted that, “Sharm El sheikh is currently hosting a conference to save the planet [referring to COP27], what dose has to do with her brother’s situation?!”
