April 6th Movement: What Does “Secret General Election” Mean?

What Does “Individual Election” Mean?

It means the electoral rounds are divided up according to the number of members of the People’s Assembly. In each round, there are 2 candidates: one from the upper classes, and one from the class of the workers and peasants. You must then choose only 2 from among all of the candidates in your round.

Yes to National Unity, and a Thousand No’s to Burying Heads in the Sand

The Progressive Union of the Revolution’s Youth mourns with our Egyptian people the victims of ignorance and sectarianism that fell during clashes on 8 May in Imbaba, which led to the deaths of at least 12 citizens and the injury of more than 220. Likewise, attacks have extended to private and public property, to say nothing of the partial destruction of the Marmina Church and the complete burning of the Church of the Virgin.

It is Not a Second Revolution, but Rather an Ongoing Revolution until the Regime is Toppled

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.

It is the Second Massacre, oh Lord of the Ka’ba

After this massacre, Field Marshal Muhammad Tantawi issued a short statement, but it was pure rhetoric, not a statement at all. He began with a consolation for the families of the martyrs, thinking that such rhetoric could bandage these families’ wounds. It is as though, in the rationale of these leaders, the blood of Egyptian men and women were cheap.

The Struggle Movement

Don’t know how to reclaim your rights? Unable to say anything because you don’t understand what’s yours and what’s expected of you?

Statement from the ‘Bidaya’ Movement

Seeing as no clear visions, programs or solutions have been put forward by the leadership and government who have managed the country’s affairs during the past eight months… seeing as there has been no commitment to achieving the goals of the revolution, and the mistaken practices and isolated issuance of unwanted decisions and laws, without the participation of political forces, has only continued… given all of the above, it is our duty to stand again to reclaim this revolution, to achieve its goals and build upon its accomplishments by transferring the country to civilian power—agreed upon or elected—in accordance with the people’s demands.

Have you Noticed?

There are people who paid for freedom with their blood and people paying millions for seats in the People’s Assembly. There are people who went down into the streets to raise Egypt’s flag and people who went down to raise the flag of their party. There are people who were dying in Tahrir and people hanging up their signs because of elections and seats.

April 6th Youth: Given the Movement’s…

Given the movement’s belief in the danger of the current circumstances and the importance of the historical moment… and based on our responsibility to the nation and to the blood of the martyrs… and after the latest events, which established beyond doubt the failure of the military council in administrating the transitional period, the smearing of its hands with the blood of the nation, and [the military council's] collusion with the counter revolution and its heartfelt solidarity with it…
