COP27: Nobel Prize Winners Demand Egypt Demand Political Prisoners

More than a dozen Nobel laureates have urged world leaders to put pressure on Egypt, the host of the COP27 International Climate Conference, to release “thousands” of political prisoners, including prominent Egyptian-British activist Alaa Abd el-Fattah.
The 15 Nobel laureates urged the leaders to “use every opportunity” during the conference “to bring the voices of the unjustly imprisoned into the room” in a letter sent to the United Nations, the European Council, and heads of state in France, the United Kingdom, the United States, and France, among others.
The UN-organized COP27 will take place from November 6 to 18 in the Egyptian Red Sea city of Sharm el-Sheikh, with the goal of bringing governments together to accelerate efforts to address the world’s climate crisis.
