Outcome of 25 January: Three dead,
tens injured, and hundreds kidnapped.
Rubber bullets, tear gas, electric sticks,
and technical attack on activists


Cairo 26 January 2011 - 4:00 AM - FRONT TO DEFEND EGYPT PROTESTERS

The FDEP said today “the outcome of the protests today was the death of at least three protesters and the injury of tens of Egyptians in addition to hundreds of people kidnapped in central security camps in Cairo and other governorates.

This confirms the Egyptian government's determination to violate the rights of Egyptian citizens to peaceful assembly and protest and to commit crimes against the Egyptian people and citizens who have peacefully assembled in different areas in Cairo and other governorates. Egyptian security used against protesters rubber bullets, tear gas bombs, electric sticks, and water pipes.

The outcome of the protests also confirmed the control Egyptian authorities have over the Internet. A number of news websites were blocked and some of them were disabled. In addition, the Egyptian government with the cooperation of the three communication companies (Mobinil, Vodafone and Etisalat) suspended a number of mobile lines belonging to activists. These included emergency lines of the FDEP.

The outcome of the day was that those injured are being terrorised by arresting those who went to hospitals for medical attention. This was the case in Imbaba hospital. FDEP lawyers were banned from communicating with one of the victims named Amr.

FACEBOOK & TWITTER are now FULLY BLOCKED IN EGYPT

Quote:
Revolutions spread by the domino effect. And the Tunisian revolution
against Ben Ali proved to be a major source of inspiration to the Egyptian
people, in the same way that Egyptian dissent over the past five years has
proven also to be a catalyst for other Arab people to step up their fight
against their dictators and also in the same fashion that the Palestinian
intifada in 2000 steered the Arab street into action.

We are living in the age of satellite TV stations and the age of social media.

Whenever dissent explodes in one area, the imagery can be
transmitted to other areas. And people here in Egypt can draw
parallels between Ben Ali and Mubarak.

We don't have only one Ben Ali in the Arab world;
we have 22 Ben Alis, and they all need to go.


And the chants yesterday that the people were chanting in Cairo
and in the provinces were very similar to the chants that our Tunisian
brothers and sisters have been chanting over the past few weeks in
their uprising. We salute their struggle, and we hope that we can
pay them back by overthrowing our dictator.

It sadly reminds me of Bangkok in April/May 2010.

2011: watch out. We ain't seen nothing yet.





Fintan, thanks for keeping us updated. You are truly deserved of a journalism award.

I'm just a hack on the job.
They deserve the awards.


Do I have to point out the consequences
for tyranny around the world if the second
domino: Egypt
were to fall?


Once is a charm. Twice is a surge.

Egypt, at this cosmic time.
In these social circumstances.
With this communications net.
Global.

Interesting........

Push is coming to shove right now in Egypt:

Protests in Egypt - live updates



Smoke rose over the city of Suez on Thursday as sometimes violent
protests continued there. In the capital, a relative calm settled over the
streets in anticipation of a new wave of demonstrations anticipated for
Friday.

Raising the stakes, the Muslim Brotherhood, long the country’s largest
organized opposition group, intends to end days of official inaction to
enter fully into protests on Friday. On its Web site, the group said it would
join “with all the national Egyptian forces, the Egyptian people, so that
this coming Friday will be the general day of rage for the Egyptian nation.”

Yemen joins Egypt in revolt

Jan 27th, 2011 | By Bikya Masr Staff | Category: Gulf

On Thursday, Egyptians continued pressure on the government as support for anti-government policy continues and citizens take to the street. In Yemen, citizens followed their Egyptian friends in taking to the streets in anger at the government, demanding that the government – in power for over 30-years relinquish power.

Like Tunisia earlier this month and Egypt this week, Yemenis are hoping that grassroots anti-government protests can help spur a change in government. In Tunisia, the president of 23-years was forced to leave office and fled the country.

Yemenis were not prepared anymore to put up with widespread poverty while “corruption is everywhere”, Hakim Almasmari, the Editor-in-chief of the Yemen Post told the BBC World Service.

“They are saying: ‘Enough is enough, we want justice, and those who are corrupt should be taken to court’.”

President Ali Abdullah Saleh now joins Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak on the edge of chaos. The question now for the region is what these aging dictators will do. Will they relinquish their power, or will they use the heavy hand of government to put down, even more violently, the protesters who have taken to the streets.

As Thursday comes to an end in Yemen, thousands of citizens continue to demonstration in the capital, Sana’a. They are hoping to make change happen.

Almasmari said the opposition had decided to initiate protests against the president because “they felt that all chances of a dialogue with the ruling party are vanishing.”
