Las organizaciones signatarias de la declaración apoyan el deseo del pueblo egipcio de ejercer sus derechos civiles y alertan al pueblo y a las autoridades sobre la pérdida de elementos del patrimonio cultural que Egipto ha preservado por largos años. Asimismo, expresan su temor de posibles pérdidas en el futuro. Y al mismo tiempo alertan a las autoridades para que ejerzan sus obligaciones de proteger el patrimonio cultural egipcio.

La Sociedad Dominicana de Antropología (SODAN) y PATRIDOM-NET, conscientes de la situación que atraviesa el pueblo egipcio, se adhieren a la declaración de apoyo a este mismo pueblo elaborada por el Instituto Americano de Arqueología y la Asociación Americana de Antropología.

In conjunction with the Archaeological Institute of America, AAA signs Statement of Support for Egypt. This statement shares its concern for the Egyptian people and the loss of cultural heritage that Egypt has sustained and the threat of further losses. AAA pleads for Egyptian authorities to utilize their authority to protect their country’s irreplaceable cultural heritage and calls US and EU law enforcement to take action on the appearance of looted Egyptian antiquities at their borders.

STATEMENT OF SUPPORT FOR EGYPT

“The undersigned cultural heritage and archaeological organizations express their concern over the loss of life and injury to humans during the protests in Egypt this week. We support the desire of the Egyptian people to exercise their basic civil rights. We also share their concern about the losses to cultural heritage that Egypt has already sustained and the threat of further such losses over the coming days.

Brave actions taken by the citizens of Cairo and the military largely protected the Cairo Museum. However, numerous sites, museums and storage areas located outside of Cairo are even more vulnerable. As the prisons are opened, the potential for greater loss is created. Multiple reports now say that damage has been done to storage areas and tombs in Abusir and Saqqara and that looting is occurring there and in other locations.

We call on the Egyptian authorities to exercise their responsibilities to protect their country’s irreplaceable cultural heritage. At the same time, we call on United States and European law enforcement agencies to be on the alert over the next several months for the possible appearance of looted Egyptian antiquities at their borders”.
