Urgent Announcements for This Weekend 
NYC, North Carolina, Texas
Assalaamu Alaikum (Greetings of Peace):
I begin with a heartfelt note of thanks and congratulations to "Justice By The Pen" (its founders Hany and Ayesha), and the coalition partners who helped organize the excellent outdoor Aafia Siddiqui initiative in Jackson Heights, NY this past weekend. (I will have more to say on this later, insha'Allah)
I received a call yesterday from a Washington area imam, who happens to be Egyptian, who asked if it would be possible for me to take a trip to New York City this Saturday and speak at the planned demonstration at the UN regarding Egypt. I am already committed to a couple of speaking engagements in North Carolina this weekend, and thus, I will not be able to participate in the NY initiative. I do endorse the effort, however, and encourage our friends and supporters in the New York Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut) to fully support the effort in whatever way you possibly can, inshaAllah.
Last year at this same time - during the UN General Assembly - a personally witnessed a sizeable demonstration that was organized in the vicinity of the UN by disgruntled opponents of the [then] newly elected, and now deposed president, Mohamed Morsi (who had just assumed office)! Saturday will be an opportunity for people of good will to present a counter-narrative in the public square. What follows is a message from a friend, followed by a few travel related details (from the DC area) on this upcoming initiative.

Saturday Morning, September 28 - A Protest Demonstration at the United Nations in New York City For Egypt!

Dear Community Leaders and Activists:
The Egyptian people are suffering a great human rights tragedy, and heinous crimes perpetuated by their military leaders with collusion from the autocratic leaders of the region. It behooves the people committed to the sanctity of human life and ideals of liberty and democracy everywhere to support the call for demonstrations by the Egyptian Americans for Human Rights and Democracy, and join them at United Nations on Saturday, September 28, 2013.
    Please share this email with your friends and family, especially in the New York area, and encourage them to join the demonstration.
May God Almighty (Allah) bless you for your thoughts and deeds!

The Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR)
is inviting concerned Egyptians and Non-Egyptians in the Washington DC area to join us in a trip to NY city on Saturday September 28, 2013 to protest the participation of the Egyptian Military Coup Delegates in the UN Annual General Assembly Meetings.  We need the most number of anti-coup protesters to attend as the bloody coup supporters are also going to protest in front of the UN headquarters.  Last year, Dr. Morsi, the first ever democratically elected president, represented Egypt.   This year, the illegal coup government is sending Mr. Nabil Fahmy (instead of their illegal puppet president Adly Mansour). We must outnumber the pro-coup protesters (in sha Allah) to denounce the delegates of the bloody coup. 
The demonstration will take place from 9:00 am to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday September 28, 2013.
Buses will leave VA & MD around 4:00 am on Saturday 9/28/2013.
The cost will be $15.00 per person ($30 per family).  Reservation required
Donations accepted. Some free seats are available.
We encourage everyone to commit to this valuable cause as soon as possible by sending an email to:
Virginia:    ALYSOL@ATT.NET        
Please indicate your name, no. of persons in your family/group, your email address and your cell phone number.  
Another forwarded announcement (with our Full Endorsement). Committed Muslims in the DFW area need to come out and support these efforts being made by concerned and committed non-Muslim neighbors! - MS
The Next Vigil for Aafia Siddiqui and Lynne Stewart @ FMC Carswell in Ft. Worth, TX, is this Saturday Morning (9/28), from 11 -11:30 AM.
