Sibel Kekilli supports Azza Suleiman from Egypt. She has been beaten very badly by soldiers in Cairo while attending a public protest walk. They tried to keep the 49-years-old from helping another woman who has been lying on the ground injured and naked. Azza Suleiman caused a head fraction and has not been fully recovered. Sibel Kekilli hopes that the Egypt government will receive lots of appealing letters: “Every human being has a right of a self determined and free life. Azza Suleiman has risked her life for an unknown protester. And we should not turn our eyes away from that – we have to support her right now.

PETA

Sibel Kekilli has supported PETA for several years. After an advertisement opposing the abuse of so-called stray dogs, she now protests, together with many other celebrities, against the annual killing of thousands of baby seals. „How can one cause so much suffering without thinking of the agony and pain the animals go through“, says Sibel. „The slaughter of seals is the largest massacre of sea mammals worldwide and has developed into a gory blemish on Canada’s reputation. Please support PETA’s camapign!
