Egypt National Symbols, Leaders Urge Revolution Against Illegitimate Coup Regime
|Friday, January 22,2016 06:36|
Daily campaigns of extrajudicial killings and arbitrary arrests by the repressive and corrupt regime in Egypt coincide with a speech that sums up the January 2011 Revolution in "dividing Egyptians", to achieve one goal: to kill the Revolution and trample the people's demands.
The Revolution would certainly be sabotaged, if left to the corrupt coup regime, or to emotive rhetorical discourse that stems not from the fundamentals of our people or principles of our Revolution.
In January 2011, our Revolution started peaceful and bloodless. It woke up the sleepy, inspired inert and silenced the oppressor.
The flag will not be handed over to those who engage in irresponsible discourse, claiming they speak in the name of the Revolution, while only aiming to serve the counter-revolution.
Our Revolution is for all Egyptians. It does not exclude or alienate any-one, nor does it refuse any faction, or destroy any country.
It is every Egyptian's Revolution. It aims to save and protect the homeland. It is the way to freedom, justice and dignity. The Revolution does not rely except on its own men and women – who believe in its dream, work to achieve its demands and never discriminated between revolutionaries.
The Revolution will soon have its unifying body for all its loyal men and women who commit to its principles, to cohesion of the Egyptian people, to saving our country and to the preservation of democratic gains for future generations in Egypt.
Every free, patriotic Egyptian must endeavor to put an end to the crime of this military coup d'état that trampled the people's will and freedom. Egypt's squares will accommodate all the free patriotic people of this country, just like detention camps and exiles.
Our country will be liberated by the hands of all its people who reject injustice, challenge corruption, and never compromise on their homeland.
Long Live Egypt Free and Proud
One United Revolution
