Yesterday we had a protest at Tahrir square , this Friday was called “Rejecting the Apology” Friday and the apology was that assumed apology going to be issued of Mubarak. This Friday protest was announced only on last Tuesday after the shock of Suzanne Mubarak’s release and the leaks about Mubarak’s apology.
I went to Tahrir square this Friday and I did not a huge or big or even impressive protest. Very small protests instead with lots and lots of street vendors who found a huge golden opportunity in this sort of events. I do not know if it was the hot weather or not. Anyhow many people were provoked yet they did not go to the protest yesterday as they are preparing for the protest on May 27 in Tahrir.
The protesters chanted against corruption , Mubarak and sometimes against field marshal Tantawy and the SCAF. There was a protest against the military trials with photos and names of those arrested and prosecuted in front of the military courts. I think the protest was enforced some how when the White Knights Ultras protesters came to the square objecting the arrest of student Mohamed Sadaty in the events of the Israeli embassy.
Here are couple of photos I took there
Here are video clips I filmed and posted to Bambuser , I wish YouTube generalizes the Live streaming option to all users not only channels like Bambuser because I prefer to keep my media in one place.
For the sake of the country , we should be more than this insh Allah next week , we should be more diverse in order to represent a large sector from the Egyptian people. Our demands should be specific and honestly I do not want this talk about presidential council because most Egyptians I know “non activists” refuse it. I do not want to be “against the Egyptian army protest” as some people wish and want , this is a pressure tool on the SCAF ,the Tahrir monitors you general.
FYI the Mustafa Mahmoud club is currently kissing the SCAF ass with my all due respect calming that the activists are now working to bring down the Egyptian army and the SCAF is the source of stability .. blah blah blah.
P.S I was so so happy that day to meet in person number of dear bloggers and tweeps , already every time I went to Tahrir square during protests I could not meet everybody because of the huge number of protesters but this time we made it.
