Human Rights Watch: Egypt Pressures Activists

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has released a report saying that the Egyptian government, the host of COP27, is cracking down on environmental activists. In the report, HRW says the Egyptian government is forcing activists within environmental groups to flee the country through harassment, arrest, and intimidation. Other environmental advocacy groups are also concerned about the Egyptian government limiting the number of civil society groups that will be allowed to attend COP27, tightly controlling planned protests, and allowing only limited demonstrations in a cordoned-off area at the conference's borders. On the other hand, the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs denied the findings in the report.
