Street art makes statement on Egypt


Waitaki Girls’ High School students are flexing their creative muscles this week, using street art as a way of getting a serious message to Egypt’s leaders.

It’s all part of Amnesty International’s Freedom Week – a team challenge for youth groups in New Zealand to take action on and fundraise for human rights around the world.

The Waitaki Girls’ High School Amnesty group have got on board the campaign for women’s rights, and to protect those who are at risk of sexual and gender-based violence in Egypt.

Protests both in support and opposition to President Morsi’s rule have resulted in multiple deaths and injuries, attacks and harassment. Women and girls protesting in and around Tahrir Square were being sexually attacked by mobs.
