Egypt: ‘Coup is Terrorism’ Week

Anti-Coup, Pro-Legitimacy Alliance Confirms ‘Coup is Terrorism’ Week

Cairo, September 6, 2013 - As the Muslim Brotherhood-led pro-democracy coalition hails the millions of citizens who turned out for “The People Protect the Revolution” Friday, it affirms the start of the “Coup is Terrorism’ week.

Once again, the great people of Egypt stood strong in the face of injustice, as millions of Egyptians came out Friday in massive demonstrations under the slogan "The people protect the revolution", with huge numbers and broad and positive participation of different groups and movements in all twenty-seven governorates of Egypt.

Demonstrators defied the coup threats Friday, came out in their persistently peaceful protests, and broke the dark image coup leaders have been desperately endeavoring to paint of violent protesters carrying weapons.

On Friday, non-violent demonstrators, with bare chests, were not afraid of live bullets shot at them in Damietta demonstrations, in which at least one anti-coup pro-democracy protester killed.

On Friday, peaceful protesters, with their bare hands, were not afraid of live bullets shot at them in Cairo, where one protester was killed and dozens were injured.

Non-violent, unarmed citizens did not stop their protests when security forces fired tear gas canisters on their peaceful march in Assiut.

The Anti-Coup Pro-Legitimacy Alliance pays sincere tribute to the brave Egyptian people who refuse injustice. The Alliance further calls on all Egyptians to complete and protect their Revolution, until the military coup is defeated, constitutional legitimacy is restored, and all those who committed crimes against the Egyptian people are held accountable.

The Alliance affirms the continuation of the people's Revolution against the coup, with peaceful protest activities persisting this week under the title "The coup is Terrorism", so our nation will know just who are the terrorists – the people or the coup authorities?

The Alliance also reaffirms that it follows up escalation of civil disobedience campaigns organized by Egyptian youth all over the nation.

May God protect Egypt and its people…

We shall persist in our peaceful struggle

ENDS

So… Boris Johnson is promising that he won't be holding a snap general election, if he's chosen as the next UK Conservative Party leader. Reportedly, he is even making that promise a feature of his leadership campaign, since a vote for Boris would therefore mean (wink wink) that his colleagues wouldn't have to risk their jobs and face the wrath of the British public until 2020.

Nothing has epitomised the presidency of Barack Obama quite like his Supreme Court nominees.

Yet Obama has consistently skipped over the judicially qualified liberals and gone for a succession of centrists... More>>
