BELOW IS A LETTER TEMPLATE THAT YOU CAN SIGN AND EMAIL TO HILTON.
To whom it may concern,
This is a quick letter as the situation is urgent and unpredictable.
About 20 foreign journalists are currently holed up in Hilton Hotel Cairo, Egypt which is currently right on the front line of the street battles going on in that city.
We’ve had news all day of targeted attacks on journalists and news has just come in of a foreign journalist beaten to death in the streets today.
Currently the mobs targeting journalists are right outside the Hilton but have not breached the premises.
Word is that staff are getting edgy, the journalists equipment has been confiscated, and there is danger both that the staff will hand the journalists over or the mobs will breach the hotel.
This is just an email to request that Hilton does all they can to protect those journalists currently inside the Hilton.
Today we’ve seen companies like Vodafone implicated in the Egyptian government’s plans to stop the protests. This has irrecoverably damaged their brand worldwide and within the region.
Please don’t let Hilton become another reputable company complicit in the horrible violence and attacks on human rights and freedoms currently underway in Egypt.
Yours in hope,
