Egypt - the real US position

02-02-2011 12:28

The Council of Foreign Relations is the top US think tank. It devised the UN before the 2nd World War and top politicians and media are members.

The European Commissian published today their Council conclusions on Egypt. Since this action does not go beyond a declaration (diplomatic action of degree 1), it is a slap in the face from the Egyptian freedom movement and every sincere democrat. Time is running out, don't wait 'till friday !

New blog from one of the few places in Cairo w/ internet connection, pls repost

31-01-2011 00:57

"This blog is a collection of comments, contributions and visual media from the Egyptian uprising. It is sent out from one of the few locations in Cairo with an internet connection. Mubarak’s regime cut the internet to the country ahead of a call for a day of rage. The consequences of this day have gone beyond any expectations."

The Egyptian people need our support now !

30-01-2011 21:57

Only tough diplomatic measures from the west might withhold Mubarak from bloodily squelching the justified demands from his citizens. We will not get these by demonstrating in front of the Egyptian embassy, but only by demonstrating in front of our parliaments and ruling parties offices.

Evil Iran hangs my friend Zahra Bahrami

Zahra playing tanpura in Jane’s apartment. (Amsterdam, 2005)
Early this morning the murderously barbaric Iranian regime hanged my friend, and my friend Jane’s friend, Zahra Bahrami. Her crime? To be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Even though the (ugh!) Islamic Republic of Iran would like for the world to believe otherwise.

“You're in charge but don't touch the controls.”

Indymedia UK, one of the oldest Indymedia websites worldwide, will fork in two projects by the 1st of May 2011 [1].

Egypt: Cue the dirty tricks, false flags to discredit pro-democracy movement

30-01-2011 14:55

Egyptian soldiers stand guard in front of the National Museum in Cairo, 29/01/11
The looting of Cairo’s world-famous Egyptian Museum over the weekend seems to have engendered the desired news headlines.

‘Looters smash ancient treasures’, ‘Looters decapitate mummies’, ‘Looters rip off heads of artifacts’ etc., read a rash of headlines, following the apparent breaking into the country’s national museum, which is said to house the world’s biggest of Pharaonic antiquities.

However, it has since emerged, although with much less headline coverage, that some of the would-be looters apprehended by protesters outside the museum were identified as working for the state’s interior ministry.

The incident may be just a foretaste of a wider range of propaganda stunts or false flags, including atrocities and fatalities, that the Mubarak regime will enact in order to discredit the protest movement sweeping that nation.

Students face disciplinary action after protest

30-01-2011 13:46

Ten University of Birmingham students are facing disciplinary action that could lead to expulsion after a peaceful sit-in that ended with forceful eviction by university security and the police.
The University has seemingly singled out students who they perceive to be politically active in an attempt to victimise them. Twenty-five students participated in the occupation; ten students are facing disciplinary procedures including one who was not even involved. The hearings will take place on Wednesday, 2nd February.
