Where is Mostafa al-Naggar? Today marks 500 days since the former opposition lawmaker was last seen. He is one of many dissidents forcibly disappeared by the #Egyptian regime.
In 2010 in #Cairo, I met Mostafa al-Naggar for coffee. At the time, he was a dentist who blogged, and I had just finished teaching a course at the New School in #NYC. I had assigned his writing to my students and they interviewed him for their semester project. #WhereIsMostafa
Mostafa went on to become elected to #Egypt’s first-post #Jan25 Revolution parliament.

An #Egyptian court has ordered the country's interior minister to reveal the whereabouts of Mostafa, who is believed to be in state custody.… #WhereIsMostafa
The binding decision from the state council court was an unusual show of defiance to the regime of Trump’s “favourite dictator” Sisi. It compelled Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfik to reveal Naggar's location within a month. #Egypt #WhereIsMostafa
Mostafa el-Naggar is one of two men, both called Mostafa, I know who have been forcibly disappeared in #Egypt.

The other one is my friend, Mostafa Massouny, missing since June 2015. I wrote this about him in 2016 #whereismassouny #WhereIsMostafa…
March 26 will be Mostafa Massouny’s 32nd birthday. We don’t know if he is alive or dead. He was forcibly disappeared by #Egyptian security forces on June 26, 2015. We remember you, Massouny. #WhereIsMassouny #WhereIsMostafa #Egypt
For every Mostafa el-Naggar and Mostafa Massouny, there are thousands of others whose names we don’t know, disappeared into the jails of Sisi, Trump’s “favourite dictator.”

Fuck fascism. Fuck dictators everywhere.
