Egypt protest

Thousands of demonstrators took out the streets of several Egyptian cities on Friday in the first mass protests since years, calling for the resignation of President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi.

Clashes erupted between security forces and protesters where tear gas has been fired to disperse demonstrators at the Tahrir Square, where country-wide protests swept Egypt which eventually toppled former president Hosni Mubarak.

The protests came after Egyptian businessman and actor, Mohammed Ali, posted several videos accusing President Sisi of corruption, demanding his resignation or removal through mass protests.

“If el-Sisi does not announce his resignation by Thursday, then the Egyptian people will come out to the squares on Friday in protest,” Ali said in a video posted on Tuesday.

Mohammed Ali, who lives in self-imposed exile in Spain, began posting videos on September 2. He accused the President of wasting money on leading a luxurious life while millions of Egyptians live in poverty.

In 2013, Abdel Fatah el-Sisi led a military coup to overthrow former President Mohammed Morsi; a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated leader to came to power after Hosni Mubarak was toppled.

On September 15, Egyptian President ‘Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi said at a conference in Cairo that the events which led to the war in Syria were planned by terrorist organizations that sought to destroy the country.

Every DOG has his Day. In 2013 when SISI was so eager to grab the power and threw out President Mohammed Morsi he would never have known that September 2019 onward his down fall would start. People decide finally. Military dictatorship doesn’t deliver and eventually the country ends up going to Dogs to ruins, a similar situation is happening in few other countries across the globe & in Asia too.

If this would result in Sabahi becoming president, then there’s hope for Egypt. As long as the “Brotherhood” is around, it’s hard to be optimistic. Egypt is begging for Nasser’s ideology.
