The blood of those demanding democracy is being shed on the streets of CAIRO

 

 

APPEAL BY ARABIC NETWORK FOR HUMAN RIGHTS –

An urgent appeal from the Arabic Network for Human Rights to all honorable people  and all those who defend democracy in Egypt and the world to extend their assistance and work to provide protection for the protesters demanding democracy in Egypt, who are being subjected to criminal attacks from gangs armed with knives and cudgels and sticks, and who are dealing with the protesters in a hysterical manner, as a final step to protect President Hosni Mubarak.

Only 8 hours after Mubarak claimed that he intended to enact reform, criminal gangs armed with knives and cudgels and sticks and riding on horses and camels were launched in an attempt to invade Tahrir Square and attack the peaceful protesters, in order to make it appear that there is a battle between supporters and opponents of the regime, as if there is anyone left who wants any further continuation of the regime which monopolized political power for 30 years.

Despite the occurrence of violent attacks in full view of the army forces, they have not intervened, which puts into question the “neutrality” shown by these forces!

And despite increases in the number of injured among the peaceful protesters at the hands of these gangs, the number of protesters calling for democracy is becoming much larger, and they are becoming more angry and more insistent on extracting their rights to democratic rule.

The democracy protesters have exposed the identity cards and membership cards of some of the members of these gangs, which make clear that many of them are members of the secret police.

The Arabic Network for Human Rights reaffirms that there is no power which can stop the desire of the Egyptian people to achieve democracy, especially since it is has become completely clear that the power of the dictatorship has begun to crumble, and that it is trying hysterically to save itself in the last moments, relying on the shameful complicity of the American government which has never supported democratic rule in Egypt, instead supporting a regime which protected its interests in a continuation of its experience in supporting the dictatorships of Latin America. But the U.S. has forgotten that these dictatorships fell and the falsely democratic mask of the U.S. government fell with them.

61 Egyptian human rights organizations warn of internal violence in Egypt, President Mubarak’s insistence on staying and the need for the Egyptian army’s interference to protect the protesters.

Feb. 2 | Egyptian human rights organizations signatories to this statement have been following the current events with keen interest and deep concern, what it has created from variations in the people’s situation, and their consequences of further bloodshed,… Read More »
