Egyptian Chronicles: The 25th Big Day

The 25th Big Day

 Here today is the 25th of January , the Police national day , after couple of hours supposedly insh Allah there will be huge protests across the country demanding specific political and social demands.
The news talk shows last night could not ignore the day and it showed nothing except that the regime is freaked out
The protests have not started but I will say that the day is successful “Insh Allah” because it showed how much the regime is scared from the people , the regime freaked out after knowing that thousands accepted the protest invitation online not even offline. Thanks to our Tunisian brothers our regime began to fear us more and more.
That scared regime is actually a weak one that has no confidence in itself , sooner or later it will fail.
Now it is 1:16 AM Cairo local time and there are rumors circulating the internet in a silly way.
More updates to come insh Allah to this post through out the day.
Before I forget please remember the real heroes of the Ismailia Police Force that stood with the people against the British occupation in the canal zone.

    1. Freedom to the people Inshallah.

      It is about time they break the chain of fear and go on the streets to claim back their freedom they were born with!

      It was funny to see that the show Masr el Na7arda was all set up, thanks to the bad acting of the presentator. I hope the people are not afraid and stupid to fall into their schemes and let us hope for a successful day tomorrow!

    2. Dear Egyptian sisters and brothers, I send you my best wishes for this day of yours of struggle for democracy, with the raccomandation to keep your anger under control as much as possibile, so that they cannot exploit it: against the "Power" one has to be cunning and careful..
      I'm writing from Italy, where our own democracy is being seriously threatened, and where we must face an anthropological disaster which is destroying our faith in the future and leaving us without words in front of the world.
      Hasta la victoria siempre

    10. From a Tunisian brother, please keep the protest alive in Egypt and seek your freedom from failed leadership. We rely on our Egyptian brothers to complete the struggle and show the way to other who would otherwise be democratic nations but still hesitate. God bless you all.
