Eastern Region Green Party calls for MPs & govt to put pressure on #Mubarak to democratise now

Green Party members from all over the East of England met in London yesterday for a Regional gathering. The following statement was unanimously agreed:

“We are concerned about the de facto militarisation of the Egyptian government, when what is really needed is a swift and clear promise of _democratisation_. We praise the bravery of those protesting against the dictatorial Mubarak regime. We call on our MPs and our government to exert the strongest possible economic and diplomatic pressure on the Egyptian regime to refrain from treating protesters with violence and brutality, and to concede forthwith the free and fair elections that are their main demand.”
