In another development today at the Madinet El Salam sit in at ERTVU building , the protesters decided to cut the Corniche way in Cairo in an attempt to grab the attention of the government , the media and the society.
Of course the people of Cairo are blaming and attacking those who cut the roads but did anyone try to listen to the Madinat El Salam’s people for real. Yes we all know that they want new homes , new apartments to live instead of sleeping in the street like that and yes there are millions like them who need real homes suitable for humans but why no one is doing something to help these people from the civil society !?
Already I know their story and some people I met are saying that these citizens got apartments which they sold and now they want new apartments. Of course as you will see in the video which I shot with my mobile phone below that the ladies are denying these claims totally , why would they sleep in the street if they have got money !?
But where are the human rights organizations !? Where are those political activists and presidential candidates !? It is not only the government’s role.
One of the ladies I saw today from Madinat El Salam wondered why the people supported the Christians sit in at ERTVU building and the government listened to these Christians and built a new church while the government is totally ignoring them. This is very dangerous , truly dangerous.
It is worth to mention that one of the protesters at the sit in drowned at the Nile last Saturday when he was washing up there while a lady protester was hit by Cairo’s governor car !! The governor tried to compensate both the family of the late protester and the lady he hit with his car with apartments. The lady and the family of the late protesters refused amazingly and made it that it was either apartments for all the protesters or they won’t leave.
One of the ladies told me that a man was allegedly hit by an army vehicle but I could not get a confirmation.
One of the ladies also asked me about these billions Egypt got and where our share from these billions. You must know many Egyptians think in this way.
Again I wonder the role of Egyptian human rights organizations , civil societies , the political parties and potential presidential candidates from Madinat El Salam sit in.
