This is for you, Kahled Said

Khaled Said, a 28-year-old Egyptian from the coastal city of Alexandria, Egypt, was tortured to death at the hands of two police officers.

According to Associated Press, Khaled was killed “after he posted a video on the Internet of officers sharing the spoils from a drug bust among themselves”. After Khaled was killed, the Police authorities refused to investigate in Khaled’s death saying that he died because he swallowed a pack of Marijuana.

The world support and international activists’ pressure ended the apartheid system. With enough support, we can end injustice, torture and police brutality in Egypt.

What happened to Khaled could have happened to anyone in a despotic regime. We are all Khaled Said.
