As the “50 member-committee” meets to amend Egypt's constitution, some civil society organizations and urban activists participated in producing what they called the “urban constitution document” [Ar]:

We present this document to “50 member-committee” as a comprehensive suggestion for articles we see important in being added to the constitution. What's more important is that we present it to all Egyptian people to work together and unify our efforts to see these rights becoming a reality.

Join us in adopting these rights, share it all over your neighborhoods, regions, villages and cities. Join the debate to improve the document. At the end, if you agree with it and the rights it presents, sign the document and help us gather signatures through spreading the word all over Egypt to make this a popular demand.
