Protests Leaders Are Been Arrested




"There is no enmity between the people and armed forces . . . We ask you not to attack our sons. This is not the (behaviour) of the armed forces. This is a peaceful protest," one protester said on loudspeakers. "We demand that the armed forces release all our sons that have been arrested in Tahrir."


Huh so much for a revolution that was backed by the military i have came to believe this was from the start a military coup with gasp under the disguise of protesters and well of course the coup has been backed by Washington.




The high command has given no timetable for transition but tried to reassure with a statement on Saturday, underlining a commitment to democracy and international treaties, aimed particularly at Israel with which it has a peace treaty.



This was also suspicious



Protesters said soldiers had detained some of their leaders and more than 30 people had been taken to an army holding area around the Egyptian Museum, which houses a unique collection of ancient artifacts, next to the square.


Why would the army detain Protesters leaders of the group? it just doesn't make any sense, so in reality egypt isn't really free at all, after all they brought change to there own country, well from the western media viewpoint.

damn it. we are being f*cking conned again. this is all part of the plan. nothing is changing for the betterment of the people worldwide. just all the devious pieces of the so-called-elite world domination jigsaw puzzle coming slowly, inexorably together. when, oh when, oh dear god when will we ever f*ucking wake-up and quash these 'illuminated' despicables, that have tied us all into slavery and view us solely as livestock. this is about destabilising the middle east until israel becomes the power and base for middle earth operations. israel is an artificial state founded for this very purpose.

The people shouldn't sit down until they're grabbing victory with both hands. Egyptians have too much at stake - fortunately for them, they're not Americans, and are thus unlikely to let things sit halfassed.

When a people resort to a violent "protest" revolution, it is like tossing your cookies in the air as to who or what will fill the vacume. That is usually the best armed and the meanest who moves in to fill the empty place. For now it is the military and then it will be the head choppers. There will be no representative democracy and human rights in Egypt because of Islam.

Was that a surprise to anyone here? once you dissolve a parliament you cant have elections, dont forget the mainstream news media played a major role as well.


The Egyptians people were fooled once again, amercia and britian again also played a role.


I hope the Egyptians members here on ATS Wake up tell there people.

Sara123123 has pretty much hit it on the head, IMO. Especially with the Muslim Brotherhood lurking in the background. Some other strongman or group will fill the void.

The whole idea when 'Parliament is Dissolved' is to hold elections in the near future
Muburaks Party held the majority in Parliament, it had to be dissolved...there is a gripe that it wasnt done right away as soon as Muburak stepped down, but its done now

Dissolving Parliament was part of the Pro Democracy Supporters Demands!
Rewriting of the Constitution is also part of their demands!

Having a UNITY interim government till elections is also suggestion

One of the pet peves the Pro Democracy Supporters have; The Cabinet is still present (Muburaks men)

Our correspondent James Bays says the Egyptian military has dissolved the parliament and announced that elections will take place in September.



Egyptian TV read out the communicate, saying that elections will take place in September, and the military will only run the country until September.



This is a very important news, the protesters have been asking for a specific timeline, they wanted to know when this transition was going to take place, and when there was going to be an elected civilian government, and now the military supreme command have answered that.



It is interesting that This military communicate came out shortly after the prime minister spoke to the nation, I think that they are showing where the power is, making it clear that for now the military high command replaces the president in the structure, and the prime minister does what he is told."

10:45am The cabinet, appointed when Hosni Mubarak was still in office, will not undergo a major reshuffle and will stay to oversee a political transformation in the coming months, the cabinet spokesman says.



"The shape of the government will stay until the process of transformation is done in a few months, then a new government will be appointed based on the democratic principles in place," the spokesman told Reuters, adding that it was possible some portfolios could change hands in that period.



Interesting, something to keep an eye on: The Egyptian people want total removal of corruption which is embedded everywhere


11:35am In Alexandria, a few hundreds of workers at Bank of Alexandria are holding a protest, demanding details be released about the banks sale by the state to the private sector. Also, several hundred workers from the building company The Arab Contractors, used for almost all major construction projects by the state, are protesting in downtown Alexandria demanding better pay.

Another thing that bags me about these protests in the entire middle east, why are all the protester signs in english? dont you think that was odd?


I mean if you were in Egypt language it should be arabic not english,english should be secondary, i believe the reason they had the protester signs in english was all for show, i mean these protesters knew where the news networks where at, and where the moment could be captured.
