A group of activists and members of parliament went to Tahrir square today in an attempt to calm things down and reach to a truce between the protesters and the army.
This group included : MP Amr Hamzawy , Wael Ghonim , MP Mostafa Al Nagar , potential MP Ziad Eleimy , potential MP Ziad Bahaa El Din ,Dr. Moatez Abdel Fatah, Dr.Mostafa Hegazy , Hamdeen Sabhi , Mohamed Diab , Ziad Aly and Jawad Nabalusi.
Moataz Abdel Fatah made it clear that truce does not mean giving up the rights of the martyrs but rather to think according to his FB status.
They were divided in to groups , one staying at the square while the other group went to negotiate with the protesters , the army and the ministry of interior. Unfortunately Hamzawy was attacked by the protesters who pushed him away from Kasr Al Aini. Hamzawy and the delegation then went to the other side to speak with the army.
I spoke with Al Nagar this afternoon and he told me that people are extremely angry and demanding the army to cease the attack first.
Hamzawy revealed later tonight that he was also attacked by angry conscripts at the other side as well.
There is no truce so far with the protesters and the army as well the police , both sides are angry and furious according to Abdel Fatah who insists that the truce negotiations have not failed and that the solution is to have early presidential elections in February 2011.
Up till now there is a group of these activists in the square.
Whether you like or not there will be negotiations sooner or later. These men who went to negotiate are not bad or traitors , enough of throwing charges and splitting our unity.
