Egypt banned all sales of yellow safety vests from fear people might wear them while protesting the regime.

One human rights lawyer already detained for picture in a yellow vest, accused of belonging to a terrorist organization and spreading "fake news" says Egyptian Commission for Rights and Freedom.

"The yellow vests have meaning for the French but has nothing to do with our problems. We try to struggle for completely different things – like freedom.
I think it is very strange and I am amazed over this. Considering there is no activism left in Egypt.
It must be from fear authorities do this, but what they are afraid of I don't know", said human rights activist Esraa Abdel Fattah Ahmed to SVT News.

Merchants ordered by police to not sell yellow safety vests and orders must be approved by police, reported AP.
When asked why, police said were just following orders.

I made this account few days ago, but might be reasonable to write a short #introduction now.

From my profile, it seems like a good start:

"Various kinds of nerd, spooky SJW, code witch, and Sauron apologist.

I'll probably rant about the intersection of free software, feminism, and solarpunk."

I have enjoyed solarpunk since finding it, at least as an aesthetic and genre, but have also wanted find some community of like-minded people. This might be a good place!

I'm Rowan, 24. I came here from Tumblr as the site was getting difficult to use.

I have a degree in biology and love the outdoors. In my free time I play tabletop roleplay- my icon is my Mogma sorcerer. I do traditional art and am currently open for commissions!
