    While we have passed a long shot, still the courts are too slow and letting some pass through loopholes created by the regime to protect them from getting judged.

    The trials are based on financial corruption, at least what they started with, but the people wants them to be judged on political corruption 1st because it is the main issue and then everything else follows.
    The culture minister for 30 years who was selling his stupid paintings for thousands based using his position got free. Nothing was said about reevaluating his drawings and see if it was worth it, not to mention that there should be a law to disable public service workers to gifts and income using their position.

    Check the following video , starts with well known paints to his which was sold for hundreds of thousands by business men.

    Suzan Mubarak's case got dropped after she returned 24M EGP and a villa, other than she definitely have more, she should be judged on acquiring all her fortune illegally.

    The ruling Army's council has been judging activists and normal ppl in front of military courts after the clashes between protesters and the army in 9 March and in front of the Israel's embassy and letting the corrupt be judged in civil courts.

    Also, the council has no transparency in decision making and doesn't discuss it with the political powers and different think tanks, and it shows.

    Security has been pathetic and the interior ministry leaderships still has some corrupt elements and are causing and letting disturbances occur such as what happened to the churches.

    The people are displeased and are afraid on the revolution. One week the media screams about the financial situation and that ppl are not working just protesting. Everyone is working and no one knows anybody protesting all day and night. We only protest on Fridays when their is a need to. Then the security problem which somehow want to make the protesters responsible about it. Then there are the leaks that Mubarak wants to be pardoned if he returns the money! Furthermore, the oversensitive monarchies in the Arab world
    bis pressuring not to judge him and are panicing because to them the rulers are above law and shouldn't be impeached whatsoever.
    The Arabian Gulf Council have became a royalty club after joining Morocco and Jordan. Expect some cold relations between the Republics and Monarchies.


    Anyways, thank God what we are in now , unlike what is happening in Syria. Like father like son, a butcher and a butcher.

    BTW, about university presidents and deans, they are all going to be changed and removed. They are appointed by the interior ministry and thats why it was corrupt and hopeless to deal with.

    The dean of media and journalism college of Cairo university had plenty of protests against him and the problem escalated that military police attacked the students and doctors, detained some and the dean have issued disciplinary punishments to the doctors and many students were targeted and booted out of college.

    It was a major problem until now and damn there are some ppl much harder to remove than Mubarak.

    Girl you have a Mubarak! (An ass that don't quit)

    Ghaddafi's death is giving a big boost of hope to Syrians and Yemenis....also means that the regimes will get more desperate and more bloodshed. Already more than 20 killed in both countries.

    Hi RollingCamel,
    The situation in Egypt seems to have deteriorated again. I hope you are fine. The protesters over there are showing a lot of courage. I hope Egypt gets a truly democratic government.

    By the way, I don't know if you are aware of this, but India has also been host to (non violent) protests against corrupt politicians during the course of the year. Although this hasn't achieved anything significant, we have managed to publicize the movement a lot. Today, a youth attacked the Union Agriculture Minister of India who is one of the most corrupt politicians in our country.The state of agriculture has become very very bad under his rule. Farmers are slipping deeper and deeper into poverty and are many of them are committing suicide unable to pay off their debts. He is also alleged to get kickbacks from industries and real estate companies in exchange for land allotments.

    Below is the link to the video of him being slapped. I encourage you to spread this video as much as possible since this is the only way corrupt politicians will listen to the demands of the "99%". Some people are of the opinion that restraint must be shown, but such people deserve this kind of treatment.

    Dr. Mohammad Morsy Egypt's 1st elected civil president. The fight continues against military dictatorship.

    They just removed the elected parliament and transferred all effective power to the head of SCAF and issued crazy anti-riot laws.

    Bump for current events. Morsi was ousted by the military yesterday, and there are reports (here at least) that Pro-Morsi protestors were fired upon during demonstrations, and are fighting with anti-Morsi activists. Also heard that Muslim Brotherhood officials are being arrested or detained.

    Stay safe guys.
