Dead and Facing Military Trial – الشهيد المتهم مينا دانيال

30 Oct

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.

Alaa علاء

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.

Martyr Essam Atta Funeral – جنازة الشهيد عصام عطا

29 Oct

On the same day Khaled Said murderers were sentenced to only 7 years in prison, another crime was being committed to another Khaled-said-like but in Torra prison. Meet Essam Atta , 23 year-old martyr tortured to death at the hands of police at Torra prison on 27 October 2011. Essam Atta was falsely sentenced to 2 years in prison after going through a military court post revolution. After being sexually abused to death according to eyewitnesses in prison and his own testimony to his sister on the phone minutes before his death, the officials at the morgue had the audacity to claim his death to “swallowing drugs.” It seems like any innocent man that gets tortured to death by police miraculously happen to have “drugs” stuck in his throat. Another Khaled Said after a revolution that was sparked on police day calling for an end to torture. What will it take? 1000s of Khaled Said?!! Even if it takes millions of martyrs for torture to end in Egypt, it still won’t stop us fighting for our rights! The blood of our brothers & sisters won’t die in vain. Either we live to avenge them or we die like them…
