Alkarama regrets the lack of justice for the victims of the Rabaa massacre in Egypt, despite the decade since. 

On August 14,  2013, police forces and members of the Egyptian army stormed Rabaa and Al-Nahda squares and opened fire on peaceful protesters, killing and injuring thousands of people and burning the bodies of the dead, in a horrific crime that caused a deep wound in the conscience of humanity.
