It was not enough the night the military police decided to shoot and run-over protesters murdering over 30 Egyptians during the Maspero Massacre on black Sunday , 9 October 2011. Thousands of Christians went out in peaceful protests and marches denouncing the tearing down of Edfu church in Southern Egypt. What started as a peaceful march out of Shubra to Maspero, state TV building, ended as the mass murder of protesters, whom mostly were Christians including a dear comrade Mina Daniel . The video below shows the collection of images showing military tanks running over bodies of protesters and soldiers firing their guns at civilians.
All this was not enough for the Supreme Council for the Armed Forces, who held a press conference denying any of these vivid images blaming “infiltrators” and those “inciting violence” ensuring that there will be an investigation. About 28 “infiltrators” are facing military tribunals for the Maspero massacre, and they are all being charged with inciting violence and/or destroying military property. Out of those accused the first one accused and charged is ironically Mina Daniel, the first dead military trial victim and martyr. Others include the prominent blogger and revolutionary activist Alaa Abdel Fatah now facing 15 days detention for refusing to recognize the legal legitimacy of military courts when he was summoned today.
This is the face of counter revolution, SCAF; they kill you and accuse you for the crime they committed. The military headed by the dictator Tantawi is doing all they can to ensure the revolution is dead, but luckily dictators are always stupid and they are being exposed increasingly everyday. I salute Alaa for his stance in refusing to recognize SCAF as the legal power, but accuse it as part of the massacre. They can kill some of us, they can detained some of us, but they cannot stop all of us.
