Egypt: US Dem Leader, Nancy Pelosi, Challenges Egypt On Anti-LGBT Actions

US Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi,
has asked the Egyptian speaker of the house to denounce Egypt’s attacks on LGBT people.

She has also asked him to release those who have been imprisoned in recent assaults on the LGBT community, along with attacks on NGOs, saying they are doing “life-saving human rights work”.

She states that as one of Egypt’s largest donors and steadfast allies, America has an obligation to speak out against “these despicable violations of human rights and dignity”.

She concludes:

“It is long past time for Egypt to end its attacks on its own people”.
