Three activists of the Femen movement chained themselves to the barriers located in front of the Egyptian embassy in Paris to protest against the imprisonment of two young influencers for “human trafficking” and “debauchery”.
On June 25, three activists of the Femen movement handcuffed each other, topless, to the metal barriers located in front of the Egyptian embassy in Paris in order to protest against the decision of the Egyptian authorities to imprison two young influencers operating on the social networks TikTok and Likee, Haneen Hossam and Mawadah al-Adham, for “human trafficking”. Quoted by AFP, Mawadah al-Adham’s lawyer, master Saber Sokkar, reports that they are also accused of “corruption of family life and incitement to debauchery”.
During their punching action, the activists notably shouted “Women united against Al-Sisi” (the Egyptian president) and “indecency is in your laws”.
One of them believes that Paris should “put pressure” for the release of these women aged 20 and 23 sentenced to 10 and 6 years in prison and a fine of 200,000 Egyptian pounds (10,735 euros). “They shared a video of a woman denouncing and recounting her own rape […] and they were incarcerated for this reason because video was [considérée] as indecent, ”says the young woman.
