Police raids
ECESR offices have been subjected to multiple raids by Egyptian police leading to protest from numerous other agencies.[5][6][7][8][9][10]
2019 Egyptian protests
ECESR became well-known during the 2019 Egyptian protests for its detailed documentation of arrests of protestors and random passers-by. On 26 September 2019, five days after protests started, ECESR listed 1909 arrests related to the protests.[11]
