“Alaa has spent the last 10 years – a quarter of his life – in prison, for words he has written,” a letter reads, signed by 15 Nobel laureates on Wednesday.
“As Nobel laureates, we believe in the world-changing power of words – and the need to defend them if we are to build a more sustainable, genuinely fairer future.”
The letter demanded governments, companies, and environmental groups to pressure the #EgyptianRegime to free political prisoners before #COP 27, which starts next week in #SharmElSheikh.

Alaa concluded his letter to his sister Mona from inside prison with the hope of "meeting soon." Alaa’s next family visit is set for November 17, and "our story should be resolved one way or the other" by that date, said his sister.

It is day 46 of writer and activist #AlaaAbdelFattah's open hunger strike in Tora prison in #Cairo. His health has deteriorated to dangerous levels. When his mother Laila Soueif last visited him, she reported that Alaa had lost a lot of weight and was feeling weak.
Abdel Fattah's family fears for his life, as he enters a delicate phase of his hunger strike. His body will start using its own fat and tissues to survive, including the heart, which may have permanent and even fatal effects.
Alaa began the strike to protest his life conditions in solitary confinement. His family said he is being deprived of basic rights and subjected to repeated torture, beatings and humiliation.

أطلق كتاب الناشط السياسي المصري #علاء_عبد_الفتاح أمس الثلاثاء وبغياب علاء، في مكتبة برزخ في الحمرا. الكتاب المعنون «لم تُهزَموا بعد»- وهي عبارة كتبها علاء في العام 2017 من داخل سجن طرّة المصري، صدر أواخر الشهر الفائت وفيه مجموعة من مقالات علاء التي كتبها منذ #ثورة_يناير 2011.
وقد أبدى القيّمون على النشاط، وهم من أصدقاء علاء، قلقهم على وضعه الجسديّ والنفسيّ بسبب ظروف السجن، لا سيّما وأنّه «حُرِم من حقّ الحصول على الكتب، ومعرفة الوقت، وممارسة النشاط الجسدي».
يُذكَر أنّ المحكمة المصرية قد أدرجت علاء، في 18 تشرين الثاني، على قوائم الإرهابيّين لمدّة خمس سنوات، رافضةً الطعن الذي كان قد تقدّم به. وقد قضى علاء حتّى اليوم أكثر من سبع سنوات في سجون عبد الفتاح #السيسي بتهمٍ ملفّقة.
