FJP’s Khafagi: Pro-Democracy Revolutionaries Committed to Peaceful Protest on March 19
In a press statement Wednesday, Ali Khafagi, formerly a member of the Revolution Youth Coalition and leading member of the Anti-Coup Pro-Legitimacy National Alliance, accused the junta in Egypt of lying persistently.
"Al-Watan newspaper (a pro-military newspaper) announced ‘possible terrorist attacks’ on March 19, 2014 which happens to be the day the second revolutionary wave announced by the youth against the coup is to start, supported by the National Alliance.
"This announcement reminds of the TV show-explosions that ‘coincided’ with the first revolutionary wave in January 25, 2014. At the time, we witnessed coup forces and their hired thugs gather at the place where the explosions were supposed to be, like people gathering for a great summer picnic."
Khafagi, who also serves as Youth Secretary at the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) in Giza, called upon the junta and their vassals to change their performance, "It seems more like a black comedy… The revolutionary men and women of Egypt are determined to defeat the putschists’ terror with peaceful anti-coup protests, ingenuity and devotion".
