Stand Against Torture in Egypt on Saturday 27th of August 2011 at Boxhagener Platz

Almost 400 signatures collected in 4 hours!

This was the fantastic result of our first stand on behalf of victims of torture in Egypt. It was also the first time we had used the new location at the corner of Grünberger Straße and Gabriel-Max-Straße, right next to the Boxhagener Platz Saturday market. Members of the group turned out in their hordes and combed the market, individually or in pairs, searching for people willing to listen and sign our petition. The response, as you can see, was marvelous. Apart from a few people mistaking us for the FDP campaigning for the upcoming elections, the whole event was a great success and even the weather played its part. We will definitely be visiting Boxhagener Platz again.
