  • Raising pensions and care for the elderly
  • Provision of housing for the youth
  • Implementation of a law putting a lower limit (1500 EGP) and an upper limit on monthly wages

  • Freedom of opinion for the individual, press, and media
  • Freeing the Egyptian Pound and stopping its floatation

***And this is reconciled to God

***The Union is not associated with any party (independent)


The demonstrators came from every street, alley, and square with peasants and industrial workers. Any account would say that next Friday the voice of the revolution will be this: “We want the truth. We want our rights. We have had enough of silence. The age of truth won’t die. Wake up people! Wake up nation! For a long time we have been in distress. Shout. Tell the regime “No”. Hear me. We will die for truth and what it means. We will go out in the path of God, for I trust in the victory of God. We shall make sacrifices, but we will invigorate the feelings of each and every one of us. He who dies shall die a martyr’s death, even if you live long after the day of our return.

Great people of Egypt, we supported each other in breaking up the corrupt regime. The head has been removed but the figureheads of the regime have evaded the process so the snake’s skin can renew itself again. The regime wants to show us its strength so we need to howl as well with powerful determination, in solidarity and a with single voice, until we achieve victory. Since the deposed leader stepped down they have been playing with the people through their sharp trickery. The time has come for us to confront them and realize the aims of our pure people’s revolution which your stand and our stand mixed together with the blood of its martyrs and that of the noble martyrs of the army, the free officers. God and the people love you Egypt.


The demands of the free, revolutionary people who survived gunfire.
