“You Have Not Yet Been Defeated”: Alaa Abd El-Fattah Continues to Push for Change from Egyptian Jail

In Part 2 of our interview with the mother of prominent Egyptian activist and blogger Alaa Abd El-Fattah, who faces trial before an Emergency State Security Court in Cairo, Laila Soueif describes his conditions in prison and how authorities have barred him from sending or receiving any letters and emptied the cells around him. This week a collection of Fattah’s prison writings, interviews and articles was released as a book titled “You Have Not Yet Been Defeated.” Sharif Abdel Kouddous, a reporter for Mada Masr, reads excerpts from the book and discusses relations between the U.S. and Egypt as the country faces growing concerns about human rights abuses and holds an estimated 60,000 political prisoners.
