Schiff Distressed by Peaceful Protest Turned Bloody Melee in Egypt

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement on the situation in Egypt:

"I was deeply distressed to see the peaceful protest of Egyptian citizens demanding a better life turn into a bloody melee, as organized goon squads -- some allegedly paid, others plain clothes police officers -- attacked the demonstrators.

"President Mubarak's willingness to mobilize or tolerate such an attack on his own people has only further deligitimized his government. It is time for him to heed the call of the Egyptian people by leaving office and giving way to a transitional government that will put one of the world's great civilizations on a new path toward democracy and respect for human dignity, and restore Egypt to its rightful place as the leader of the Arab world."
