about Sisi Holocaust and massacres We are talking

http://www.democracynow.org - One year ago today, Egyptian forces opened fire on a sit-in at Rabaa al-Adaweeya Square in Cairo. Tens of thousands of people had camped in the square to protest the ouster of democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi. Over the course of a single day, in what became known as the Rabaa massacre, Egyptian forces killed at least 817 people.
(j estimates of human rights says they are 5500 people dead and 17 000 wounded)
Now, Human Rights Watch has unveiled a new report that concludes Egypt's actions likely constituted a crime against humanity, one of the worst violations of international law. The report puts the massacre on par with China's infamous massacre of unarmed protesters at Tiananmen Square. We are joined by Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth, who, along with Middle East Director Sarah Leah Whitson, attempted to enter Egypt and present the group's findings earlier this week, but was detained and turned away. We are also joined by Dr. Abdul Mawgoud Dardery, a former member of the Egyptian Parliament with the Freedom and Justice Party, the Muslim Brotherhood's political arm, which has just been dissolved by a court. Dardery, left Egypt after the coup and is now living in the United States. And we are joined from Cairo by Democracy Now! correspondent Sharif Abdel Kouddous.
