They were there to demand that he be released from imprisonment for serving as a translator at a peaceful civil disobediance protest against the military coup government in Egypt. As of the 21st of April Mohamed Soltan had not eaten for 85 days, as he is on a hunger strike against his lawless detention. He is a US Citizen, and the Department of State has also refused to take any action whatsover, just as they do in cases of unlawful rendition of US citizens to similar regimes. The coup government in Egypt is infamous for sentencing 529 protesters to death after killing thousands more in the weeks after they took power by force.
