Pro-Democracy National Alliance Calls Huge Peaceful Protest to Support Detainees on Strike
To all patriotic revolutionary men and women of Egypt…
Egyptians are growing more certain every day that the supposed protectors of the homeland are in fact its muggers, and that the military coup regime and its tools and tentacles – repressive security authorities – are determined to commit even more crimes of genocide, with their militias’ live bullets, illegitimate death sentences, and the absurd banning of legitimate organizations.
The military-installed regime is desperately endeavoring to terrorize the people into accepting the crime of appointing the traitorous coup mastermind as President of Egypt, and to cover up the crimes of removing essential subsidies, spreading poverty and the dismantling of the justice system, in order to ultimately achieve the goal of destroying this country. But this is not going to happen.
The coup regime’s murderous madness will accelerate the putschists’ downfall. This is the final stage for the falsehood. The battle of truth against it is cumulative. We will ultimately triumph. The people will escalate their revolutionary non-violent protest action with fresh ingenuity.
The people’s Revolution is the final arbitrator. It will cancel all the decisions and the verdicts of madness, and will bring to trial all the real murderers and thieves. We will reject the unjust verdicts that aim to repress the honorable people of Egypt and damage the reputation of judges and the Egyptian justice system. The coup will not enjoy usurped power, stolen money or stability.
Let our revolutionary action continue, in rejection of the coup and the latest unjust verdicts and harsh sentences. Let Wednesday be an imposing revolutionary day in support of the innocent political detainees, men and women, on strike behind bars, steadfast in the toughest detention centers. Let us gather in front of detainees and martyrs’ houses and demonstrate peacefully.
