Illicit Trade of Egyptian Antiquities Petition

Eric Cline writes in:

To all –

You may have already received this yesterday, sent from GW Media Relations (since I put you on the list), but the George Washington University Capitol Archaeological Institute announced yesterday that it has launched an initiative to protect Egyptian antiquities from illicit trade around the world. The institute identified specific actions that the U.S. government and international law enforcement authorities should take to help prevent the illegal trade of Egyptian antiquities. In addition, many of the most respected Egyptologists in the United States and the world and other respected scholarly organizations have joined the GW institute in calling for action by government and law enforcement authorities.
