On June 4th, forty-three NGO workers were convicted in a politically motivated trial targeting foreign civil society organizations in Egypt. The men and women caught up in the case find themselves as convicted criminals, with many forced to leave their homes in order to avoid imprisonment. Join us for a discussion of the case, the current human rights situation in Egypt, and prospects for the future.
