Six months have witnessed a separation of political force between the revolutionaries and those who rode the revolution’s wave to achieve their political and economic goals. Six months the people have remained waiting for the realization of the revolution’s goals of freedom, social justice, and human dignity, yet not one of them has been achieved, and at the same time the overthrown president, the symbol of corruption, repression and oppression, lives comfortably in Sharm al-Shaykh where the hand of justice is nowhere near him.
On 11 February Egyptians chanted in Tahrir Squares: “The army and the people are one hand.” Today Egyptians chant: “The people and the people are one hand.” This is the lesson of the past six months, which have witnessed not a single legal ruling against the killers.

With this slogan, the Egyptian people are returning to the street again on July 8, not to disagree about the constitution and the elections, but to complete their revolution against the ruling gang in Egypt.

On 19 November 2011, Egyptians again went out into Egypt’s streets and squares to demonstrate peacefully. The demonstrators were demanding a truly democratic, civilian state, similar to what they had dreamed of in January. Soldiers of the police and soldiers of the Armed Forces met them with excessive force, which led to the death of dozens of Egyptians and the injury of more than 3,000 peaceful, unarmed demonstrators.
The ruling issued by the administrative court Tuesday, 29 June, to dissolve the local councils is considered the realization of one of the revolution’s demands, along with the dissolving the People’s Assembly and the Shura Council in the previous period, as an expression that these three bodies are representative bodies, which the National [Democratic] Party distorted by rigging their elections.
The man who ruined the Planning Institute when he was the Minister of Planning eliminating its capabilities and abolishing its role as a creator of development policy. This resulted in a distorted economic policy that serves the rich at the expense of the poor.
The occupiers in Tahrir Square announce their complete refusal of what was stated in the Field Marshall Tantawi’s speech with regard to the solution to the current crisis. They affirm that they feel deeply insulted by the audacity of the regime to propose only partial solutions with regard to the fall of the martyrs, by the absence from the speech of any apology for what occurred—or earnest discussion of it, or any clear promise to punish the responsible parties.
The Military Council is having a “Festival of Failure and the Regime’s Remnants in Egypt” to renew faith in all the remnants of the deposed dictator’s regime, in every institution and government body, among them the newspaper Algomhuria.
