Here is below video showing the thugs and locals attacking the protesters earlier this morning , it is very close to the level that the one filming was injured.
Hazem Salah Abu Ismail FB page claimed that "despite his health condition , he was going to the sit in" in hint to his alleged foot injury. Since the announcement of his exclusion and Abu Ismail has not showed up or even thought of paying visit to his followers in Tahrir square.
There is emotional shock among young Salafists especially those at the sit in when they see themselves abandoned by their sheikhs while they find people like Nawara Negm and Alaa Abdel Fatah as well the revolutionary socialists and the anarchists they usually attack them standing besides and ready to die to defend their right for protesting.
Presidential candidates began to react , the first so far is Abdel Moneim Abu El Fotoh who rejected the attack on peaceful sit-in to disperse it. This will gain him more popularity among revolutionary Salafists and former Abu Ismail supporters yet will make him lose the Abassiya vote. It is something expected from Abu El Fotoh who is said to have visited the field hospitals there early today "Unconfirmed".
حماية المتظاهرين السلميين واجب الدولة ... الصمت على فض إعتصام سلمي بالقوة جريمة— عبدالمنعم أبو الفتوح (@DrAbolfotoh) April 29, 2012

الاعتصام السلمى حق دستورى ومكفول لكل مصرى. ننعى حركة حازمون فى شهيد اعتصام وزارة الدفاع رحمه الله وأسكنه فى فسيح جناته.— Essam Sultan (@Essam_Sultan) April 29, 2012
Liberal MP Bassel Adel urged the protesters to head back to the Tahrir square for their safety.
علي المتظاهرين امام وزاره الدفاع العوده للتحرير حرصا علي سلامتهم، و علي المتظاهرين في التحرير فتح الشوارع،، كلنا مع الغاء الماده ٢٨ ايضا— باسل عادل (@Bassel_adel) April 29, 2012
The protesters at the MOD should head back to Tahrir square and the Protesters at Tahrir square should unblock the traffic , we all want to cancel article no.28 from the presidential elections law.The Freedom and Justice Party has not official commented on the attack
How did it start ??On Late Friday night , we found out that there was a big march heading to the ministry of defense in Cairo at a very late hour with prior announcement . We knew nothing about the march that headed to the MOD at 1 AM except that it was organized mainly by Abu Ismail supporters. Sooner the march turned in to a sit in at the MOD.
The demands were clear : SCAF has to cancel article n.28 from presidential elections and dismissing the current presidential elections committee.
Despite the online realm the sit in did not gain any public support because of Abu Ismail's association. Some feared it was a trap to create clashes thus chaos enough to postpone the presidential elections and prolong the military rule time at the same time adopting another Algerian scenario in Egypt where security forces clashes once again with Islamist forces.
Many saw that this sit in was a playback for the original "Abassiya Massacre" in mid July 2011 where hundreds were injured and protester "Mohamed Mohsen" was killed after clashes with the residents as well the thugs of Abassiya area while they were heading to protest peacefully at the MOD.
Despite it was actually another Abu Ismail march regardless of how non Islamist activists try to ignore , there were some protesters from outside the Salafist trend participating in the sit in as it was chanting against SCAF at its home !! Among those who were participating : Nawara Nagm and Ahmed Abu Douma.
Here is a photo gallery by Menna aka @Miinz for the sit in before the attack in the morning yesterday.
April 6 Youth movement "The Ahmed Maher front" denied the news reports that it was participating in the sit in so did the Ultras groups after it was rumored their participation as their songs were sang.
We are all against any attack against peaceful protesters and sits in , no one argues about that but I think we should be careful to what we are being dragged to.WE all knew that the clashes will take place and it will be violently yet for some reason unknown revolutionary romantic reason some people wanted to stand in in front of the train because they are addicted to that adrenaline rush. We are still in self denial status that many of the assailants that attacked the protesters were from the locals of Abassiya.
Being a revolutionary does not make you a dreamy fool who only looks for the sky all the Time and does not use his brain carefully to choose his right battles.
