Black Caucus Discusses The Future Of Egypt

WASHINGTON  – Congreassional Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver, II has this to say on the resignation of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak:

 

“President Mubarak’s resignation responded to the Egyptian people’s call for change. For nearly three weeks we have watched with baited breath as Egyptians took control of their political destiny. Young and old, rich and poor, religious and secular, men and women flooded the streets demanding their voices be heard. As the Congressional Black Caucus we understand the fight for freedom and equality, as well as the hard work that ensues to build a better future.

 

I applaud the people of Egypt and I have been moved by their struggle to bring democracy and human rights to one of the world’s great civilizations, and one of Africa’s strongest countries. This is only the beginning and now the hard work of building a true democracy begins. I commend President Obama and the State Department for their handling of this situation as they continue to make it clear that the will of the Egyptian people is most important.

 

The CBC supports the democratic aspirations of the Egyptian people and we share in their hopes for a free, more prosperous Egypt.”
