Egypt – A Work In Progress

In Egypt, World Revolution on February 7, 2011 at 8:47 AM

Since the 25th of November when people took to the streets and occupied Tahir Square in Cairo, there have been a multitude of graphically violent images.

The video below shows a young man in Alexandria being shot and killed by police in black riot uniform. This video shows an event which is morally reprehensible  even to  the most unemotional a response of injustice is felt.

Further demonstrating the extreme violence under which the Egyptian people have lived under since 1981 is the video below which shows demonstrators helping an injured person and then coming under attack themselves.

With a population of over 80 million people the disruption to the economy can be well understood

But nothing justifies killing unarmed civilians in the streets of the capital city.

Egyptian Demonstrations Continue

Egyptian demonstrations continue

The cables from Wikileaks created February 2010 and released 28th January, show populus support for El Baradei 10CAIRO237

¶2. (C) Comment:  Mohammed El Baradei’s presence on the political
scene remains more notable than his message, which echoes existing
opposition demands.  Yet El Baradei’s sober and broad-ranging
criticism of President Mubarak’s regime, buttressed by his
credentials as a Nobel Prize winner and former IAEA chairman,
distinguished his message from that of largely ineffective
opposition leaders.  Despite his reluctance to declare himself a
candidate, he appears, for now, to have captured the imagination of
some section of the secular elite that wants democracy but is wary
of the popularity of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The significant
challenge ahead is mustering credibility on the Egyptian “street.”
The NDP has thus far stepped back from previous attempts to
demonize El, which had backfired.  The real political costs to the
regime of embracing El Baradei are low, but President Mubarak is
unlikely to receive the returning “national hero,” his criticism a
personal affront.  End Comment.

Mubarak was vice-president when Anwar Sadat was assassinated on October 6th 1981, during a parade celebrating the 1973 Suez crossing, fundamentalist soldiers leapt from trucks and machine-gunned Sadat killing him in his seat. Mubarak was shepherded away  and the rest is now a tale of brutality, corruption which have ultimately led to the Egyptian revolution as seen in present times.

Mubarak completely  inundated the voting psyche and has remained in power since. Through five American president Mubarak has seen to be the stabilizing power in the red sea region.

U.S backing both financially and militarily have sustained Mubarak through a never-ending torrent of riots the result of increased unemployment and the higher cost of living. Cronyism, nepotism and everyday shortages of food staples have led to this inevitable rush of street protest which are slowly eroding Mubarak’s stranglehold on the Egyptian people.

Numbers of protesters killed in the demonstrations vary on the source of the information.

Military have moved in to keep citizens safe, as seen in the video below, tanks are moved into position to keep protesters safe from police bullets

 

Elsewhere the military are protecting sites such as the Cairo Museum from attacks by factions on the ground who have a conflicting agenda to peaceful protests.

It may seem difficult for western people to understand who have basic freedoms which are taken for granted. But for want of a better metaphor, imagine being hungry everyday and having a boot on your throat, eventually the hunger gives way to rage and the frustration turns to anger.

Sporadic looting is causing people to return to their neighbourhood ahead of planned protests today. Residents are setting up road blocks checking cars as criminal gangs which have escaped from jails. Rumours also continue to spread that Hamas are crossing the Rafa crossing to cause unrest ahead of planned demonstrations.

The Egyptian government has also order news agency Al Jazerra to cease operations in Egypt.

Foreign Offices are urging only essential travel to Egypt.

AnonOps Arrests

In Anonymous, WikiLeaks on January 28, 2011 at 3:28 PM

This is a complete farce.

Arresting teenagers for essentially choking a server , with no real damage done  or “hacking” in the sense of any theft or other hollywood embellishments. Teenagers, arrested for exercising basic freedoms in countries who speak of freedom but do most of the killing and maiming.

The arrests are the result from the “Operation Payback” in early December 2010 when Credit Card giants MasterCard, Visa, Swiss Post and PayPal turned their back on Wikileaks as a means of supporters being able to send donations.

Regardless of this action by the misery machines, Julian Assange still posted a nearly half million dollar bail in cash on charges which five months ago were ostensibly dropped.

Egyptian Police Torture

In Egypt, NWO, WikiLeaks, World Revolution on January 27, 2011 at 12:48 PM

The video above showing the Egyptian Police torture is an upsetting video, however people need to see brutality is more than a newspaper article.

One thousand protesters were arrested in Egypt and as you can see in the video the police  process the torture in a seeming enjoyable manner.

Over the last decade Egypt has drawn spot fires of rioting , which has always been quickly quelled with ample helpings of live ammunition.

From 2006

The video above shows how over the last half decade the Egyptian people have struggled against the brutal Mubarak government.

The American Government reassess its spin doctoring

The rhetoric could be applied anywhere in the world. Economic unbalancing in the region upsets the geo-political work being done in Palestine.

We Are the New Media

In Egypt, Tunisia, WikiLeaks, World Revolution on January 26, 2011 at 10:11 AM

Videos appeared at an exponential rate through all manner of web sites. The thread was handed from continent to continent, time zone to time zone over 36 hours the Tunisian revolution unfolded heralding a new methodology of internet revolution.

Tunisia – Internet revolution

Over the last three weeks it has become obvious that “the new media” have become the agents for world political change. Never before has an example of how public internet activity could bring down a government.The Tunisian revolution and the subsequent following revolutions in Algeria, Libya and Egypt are the direct result of information sharing and on-line activism. The Tunisian revolution is one of the  first direct results of the Wikileaks U.S Embassy Cablegate being used as  validation for the people of Tunisia and the subsequent over throw of the Ben Ali government.

The internet has been transformed into a minute by minute source that is refered to for world issues over the traditional media outlets.

Unprecedented change has percolated through the Arab nations and the Red Sea geography as never before seen . For the first time an Arab leader was pressured from office by public opinion.

Mainstream media were slow to take up the thread of the Tunisian revolution, and even today have still not reported on some of the incidents, such as the Kasserine massacre.

Bloggers and vloggers from all over the world filled sites with videos taken from mobile phones. Tweets by the second buzzed through optic fibre fuelling a rage which consumed the portals of popular video sites.

Along with this were the Wikileaks U.S Embassy cables which ultimately validated the protesters claims.

The cables from the Tunisian American Embassy showed how the U.S  and the European countries knew about the Ben Ali regimes appalling human rights violations.



Systemic corruption and  bribery  were outlined in the Tunis cables, unrest and the people’s suffering were also conveyed.

However the cable does not offer a possible solution but belies support for the Ben Ali regime as gate-keeper of the economic status quo in the region.

The U.S  and European countries had 100% knowledge of the conditions that the Tunisian people were suffering under, but valued its own economic status quo in the region over the Tunisian people’s rights of self-determination.

The next video shows how Ben Ali made constitutional changes which are now causing consternation amongst the Tunisian people. Ben Ali actively sought to create a vacuum of political opposition, so any  leadership for the Tunisian people is hardly represented. This is the first test that the Tunisian people will have to overcome.

Tunisians want a complete purge of the Ben Ali legacy from their constitutional proceedings. The military have embraced the protesters as have the police.

Like an inland Tsunami the people’s media revolution  spread to Algeria, Egypt and Libya….

In Egypt the 25th January 2011 will be known as “revolution day”

Your plane is waiting Mubarak……..and Hilary…..STFU!!!
