Don’t Mess With the People

January 8, 2012

This new video calls on the people of Egypt to turn out in force once more on Jan. 25th to show the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces that Egyptians do not want a military regime but an elected civilian government.

On Jan. 25th, the anniversary of the beginning of the uprisings, we can anticipate at least two things. First, tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, will obey the call of this video.

The military regime will attempt to use the anniversary as part of its efforts to appropriate the “true revolution,” defining what counts as legitimate and what counts as destabilizing.

What remains to be seen is whether the anniversary is marred by bloodshed as these two purposes come into conflict.
