Coptic Christians Protest for Equal Rights

Ad Feedback

Coptic Christians protested outside the White House Wednesday, demanding freedom for their fellow believers in Egypt.

The Copts of Egypt are the largest Christian minority in the Middle East.

The government discriminates against them by denying access to higher education and good jobs.

Egyptian authorities look the other way when Copts are persecuted by radical Muslims.

"It's evident to anybody who can... apply logical thinking," one protestor began.  "The Egyptian authorities are in partnership with these crimes."

The protesters are calling on U.S. lawmakers to pass a resolution encouraging Egypt to protect Coptic Christians.
