Candlelit Vigil in London for those Massacred in #PortSaid #Egypt


You would have thought that those evil dictators in SCAF wouldn’t have been able to shock us Egyptians anymore. But this week, they’ve outdone themselves again.

The massacre at Port Said was not about football, but once again, an orchestrated State-sponsored attack on those who would stand against their corruption and oppression.

The Ultras (Ahly fans) who were killed have been instrumental in many of the revolutionary protests and this was revenge,  a warning, and incitement – pure & simple. An act of war & they’ve made it personal to so many Egyptians now, even those who were unconvinced by the revolutionaries & uninvolved in politics. Their blood was cheap only to SCAF.

I could see the shock & sadness so palpable in the faces of those at the vigil. Many of them knew people who had died. I’ve seen many of those people at the protests for over a year now and there seemed to be a different quality of sadness that day. The senselessness & unexpectedness was in spite of everthing, still a shock. It’s clear that SCAF have a psychopathic & sociopathic sense of impunity as there reaction to the international condemnation clearly shows.

For now, we remember the dead. Then, we must honour them by bringing their demands of freedom to life.

Please watch the video & share it. Please also come to the protest in Trafalgar Sq, London on Saturday 11th February if you can make it. Down with the military regime!
