A MEETING in Sheffield will hear shocking reports from Egypt of the army and police smashing up the camp of martyrs’ families and their supporters in Tahrir Square last week using clubs, electric batons and armoured cars.

Almost 80 activists were arrested including a 12-year old and several journalists.

Reporting Revolutions, organised by the South Yorkshire branch of the National Union of Journalists and Middle East solidarity group MENA, will be held at the Quaker Meeting House, Sheffield on Saturday at 2pm.

Speakers include members of a trade union delegation to Cairo, Saleh Anoud from Sheffield’s Yemeni community and Musheir el-Farra of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, plus reports from Syria and Libya.
