I kept starring for this post while it was blank for quite some time , I did not know what to write about tonight. I did not know what to write about amidst all that madness.
Port Said is on fire for real as the protests or rather the clashes between the security forces and the protesters continue for the 5 or the 6 day in row as I have lost counting. The last 48 hours were toughest as the security forces from police forces are using birdshots madly and sometimes live ammunition according to the protesters. Real madness in the coastal angry city. Over 1000 injured from civilians were admitted to the hospitals in the city only this week.
I will focus on what is happening right. Another round of protests, clashes and chases. There are unconfirmed news that one protester at least was killed in the clashes. Currently I know that the police wants a truce and there are negotiations between the Ultras Green Eagles and the Shura MPs in the city now. Interestingly I heard that the police officers from the city have left their work and joined the protesters.
Mahalla City in Gharbia is one fire too. The rebellious city has a good reason to protest and to clash with security forces. From two days ago a family of 4 persons have been killed allegedly on the hands of the police while chasing allegedly a group of thugs. The family was made of a mother , a father and two sons. The youngest son was the only survivor. They are from a big family in the famous industrial city. They were killed by more than 70 gunshot. The ministry of interior said at first that they were thugs then they were killed by thugs then they were killed by mistake during a chase. The city already was boiling by anger , this was the last straw.
At the same we got that interesting police movement in Egypt. It seems that the police is revolting and now they are joining the protesting movement and some of them are on strike. Not less than 30 police stations are reportedly closed by police officers , they are on strike. Several central security forces camps are also protesting. This movement is interesting because it got several demands and it is spreading in governorates.
Now the nemesis of MOI and the police , the Ultras Ahly groups are vowing for revenge next March 9,2013. The Ultras group already protested in several governorates in the past 72 hours.
This is quick wrap up for what happened today. It is a mad made day.
It is like a mad race and you do not know what you should write or cover or even follow.
