The following message was just now left on Project PM's collaborative document wherein we are compiling and editing medical and first aid information in support of the guides we've been creating and distributing in conjunction with factions of Anonymous as well as scattered parties of North African activists. It appears to have originated as an e-mail which is now being distributed by other means. Please help to distribute this message to the extent possible so that the world may see what it is that the Egyptian protesters are demanding from the criminal syndicate that is currently in charge of the country.

Update

As noted below, I've been in direct contact with activists across North Africa since protests began in Tunisia over a month ago and have spoken and worked with quite a few, not counting those with whom I've worked previously. The sentiments here are quite representative of what pro-democracy Egyptians have expressed.

Update II:

A youth activist group in Egypt just put up this banner, which I'll have translated in a moment.

Update III:

The banner depicted in the update is hard to see but reads something like:

"Demands..."

"Stepping down of the president..."

"Terminate the Emergency status now!"

"an elected parliament to modify the constitution to be able to do the presidential elections properly..."

"put the ones responsible for killing the protesters on trial"

"put the ppl who steal the country on trial"

FROM TRANSLATOR:  I can't read the first word in number 2, but I think it says to remove the current parliaments

(will update as more is determined; photo has to be altered in order to better read lettering)

ALTERNATE TRANSLATION:

We demand :
1 The departure of Moubarak
2 An end to the current Parliament
3 An end of the state of emergency
4 The creation of a national united government
5 A parliament elected by the people to modify the constitution and run the presidentials elections
6 Put those responsible for the killings on trial
7 Put those responsible for stealing the country's money and other acts of corruption on trial

Now, here's the other message received on our board. Regarding the attempt on Suleiman: better luck next time. Thanks to our translators for acting so quickly.

Subject: From the Pro-democracy Protestors in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt

I received the e-mail below, in Arabic, which has been circulating
today.  It is from the Egyptian pro-democracy protestors in Tahrir
Square and lists their demands, and how they can be met.  I have tried
to translate it almost verbatum, so those who do not read Arabic can
know what it says.  If you feel the points are valid, please pass it
on ASAP to as many people as possible.  I feel this is the least I can
do, as an Egyptian, to support  our sons & daughters protesting in
Tahrir Square.

I would add to their demands: "a guarantee that all those who joined
or instigated the peaceful pro-democracy protests that began on
january 25, 2011 will not be prosecuted".  The details of such
guarantee to be worked out very well to ensure the safety of these
young people.

All the best.

The Drive to Find and Be Fortified by the Truth

We, the sons and daughters of Egypt who took part in the protests from
January 25, 2011 and till now declare:

NO. OUR DEMANDS HAVE NOT BEEN MET

·     Only Mubarak – and not the protestors – can save the country
and the stock exchange, and return the country to normal life, etc….:

  1.   only if he steps down
  1.   and only if a national interim government to save the country

is established headed by the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court,
which would include the honest people of this land, to replace the
government of Mr.  Ahmed Shafik, which is part of the previous
government with some new faces

  1.   and only if the Peoples’ Assembly -  which is illegal as

admitted by Mubarak himself in his speech yesterday - is disbanded

  1.   and only if a new constitution is drafted.

·     The System has decreased our army, which is our protection
against Israel in Sinai, and has formed a secret army of thugs pitted
against the Egyptians who are demanding their rights in a peaceful
manner.

·     Mubarak – in his deal with the Americans – is sacrificing
the people and the country in return for keeping his chair, the safety
of his wealth, and a place for him and his family.

·     And in his deal with the Americans, Mubarak is not ensuring
a peaceful transfer of government, but he is ensuring a replacement
puppet government with new faces

·     He is involving the country in a civil war, where secret
police wear civilian clothes, and unarmed protestors are hit with
burning Molotov bombs and tramped by horses and camels, ambulances are
prevented from saving the injured, and food and medical aid are
prevented from reaching them; and he claims he is preserving the
security of the country.

·     He says in his speech that the honest police force is to
preserve the security of the country, then he orders the police to
withdraw from all parts of the country, after he has released convicts
and armed them, leaving the internal front exposed.

·     The System, the businessmen, and the politicians who benefit
from him send the System’s thugs and a secret police force from the
Ministry of the Interior dressed in civilian clothes, with horses and
camels, and armed with knives and other bladed weapons, to trample the
peaceful protestors and slaughter them.

·     Mubarak’s secret army throws Molotov bombs on the honest
protestors who are calling for peaceful protests.

·     Mubarak claims he is preserving the future of this country,
then burns its history (the Egyptian Museum) with Molotov bombs to
pressure the honest protestors, because he knows well that the
youthful protestors fear for their history in the same way that they
fear for their mothers or their sisters.

WE THE PROTESTORS IN TAHRIR SQUARE SINCE JANUARY 25, 2011 AND TILL
NOW FEBRUARY 3, 2011 DEMAND:

  1.   The announcement that the President is stepping down and is

being replaced by the head of the Supreme Constitutional Court.

  1.   Abolishment of the Emergency Law and all laws that limit

freedoms, and a declaration of general amnesty for the original and
supplementary sentences that follows all the exceptional court trials
of politicians, as well as the release of all those incarcerated due
to exceptional sentences because of their political opinions and
positions.

  1.   The independence of the judiciary.
  1.   The formation of a national interim government formed of

honest experts (technocrats), with no party or sectarian agendas, to
run the country.

  1.   The disbandment of the Peoples’ Assembly and the Shoura

Council, as well as the local councils.

  1.   The formation of a “Committee of Wise People” formed of

legislators and honest experts to draft a new constitution.

  1.   Holding free and honest parliamentary elections including all

factions without prevention or exception, under  full  judiciary and
popular supervision.

  1.   Immediate freezing of all holdings abroad of Egyptian

officials, and coordination with all governments to prevent the
transfer of these holdings until the conclusion of investigations to
determine the source of these holdings.

  1.   Bringing to trial the former Minister of the Interior, Mr.

Habib El-Adly, for charges of  high treason for the following reasons:

·     Withdrawing the security forces from all over the country

·     Opening the prisons for the convicts to escape, and
providing the convicts with weapons, which they used for terrorizing
the citizens and destroying public establishments, in cooperation with
the Secret Police.

·     Shooting live bullets at the protestors who were calling for
peaceful demonstrations

  1.   Bringing to trial the Mafia of NDP representative in the

Peoples’ Assembly, and their soldiers, the drug thugs, who killed our
sons and daughters – the unarmed protestors in Tahrir Square – by
trampling them with horses and camels, burning them with Molotov
bombs, and by shooting them with live bullets, on Wednesday and
Thursday February 2 & 3, 2011 – the second Day of Treason by the
System in a week, with more to come.

  1.   Bringing to trial Mr. Ahmed Ezz and the confiscation of all his wealth.

And we suggest that during negotiations with the Government,  the
Egyptian people should be represented by the following experts, who
are honest and are concerned with the welfare of the country (you can
look them all up on the Internet to learn about each of them):

  1.   Nobel Laureate Dr. Ahmed Zewail
  1.   Mr. Amr Moussa – long time Egyptian politician and current

Secretary General of the Arab League

  1.   Counsellor Dr. Gawdat El- Malt - President of the Central

Auditing Organization (CAO)

  1.   Dr. Galal Amin – writer / intellectual who is concerned with

the study and analysis of the history of the Egyptians

  1.   Economist Dr. Ahmed Al-Najjar – of Al-Ahram Center for

Political & Strategic Studies.  All his studies are concerned with the
problems of Egypt’s economy.

  1.   Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb – Sheikh Al-Azhar. A moderate intellectual

and thinker.

  1.   Mohamed Refa’a El-Tahtawy – Former Assistant to the Egyptian

Foreign Minister, and current Ambassador.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS:

Q:  Why do we reject the government that Mubarak has formed?

A:

  1.   Because more than half of the new government are from the

previous corrupt government.

  1.   Because the new Minister of the Interior and his men have not

yet participated in the legitimate activities of the Ministry such as
the preservation of the people’s security and serving the people.  He
only changed the motto of the Ministry and changed the clothes of the
forces to civilian clothes, and used thugs to form his new troops.

  1.   The Minister of the Interior and his men are using Molotov

bombs, bladed weapons, live bullets, horses and camels, to kill,
suppress, and terrorize the unarmed protestors who are calling for
peaceful protests.  The Minister and his men are also preventing
medical aid and food from getting to the peaceful protestors.  If this
is not being done by the Minister and his men, then by whom ????? And
why do they stand by watch ?????  And if the Minister of the Interior
does not know who is doing these things, then who else can know????

Q: Why do we reject Mr. Omar Soliman?

A: Because there are many marks and questions about him, such as:

  1.   His relationship to the suspect gas deal with Israel which

was won by a businessman who is a close personal friend of the Head of
the Israeli Mossad Mr. Shabtai Shavit,, who is himself a close friend
of Mr. Omar Soliman.

  1.   Israel considers him to be the only guarantor of the Peace

Process.  Why could that be?

  1.   He is known for his many rights infringements in his

relationship with the Moslem groups in the 90’s, as well as his
coordination with the American CIA regarding the network of secret
prisons for apprehension and torture of dissidents against the New
World Order.

إبحث عن الحقيقة وتحصن بها
نحن ابناء مصر الذين شاركوا فى مظاهرات 25 يناير وحتى الان نعلن

لا لم تـــتـــحـــقـ&# 1600;ـق مـــطـــالبـــ&# 1600;ـــــنا

·     مبارك وحده و ليس المتظاهرون هو من يستطيع أن ينقذ البلاد و
البورصة و يعيد الحياة الطبيعية و و وووو .... الخ :

  1. فقط إذا تنحى .
  1. وفقط إذا أُقيمَت حكومة إنقاذ وطني إنتقالية برئاسة رئيس المحكمة

الدستورية العليا و من شرفاء الوطن بدلاً من حكومة شفيق التي هي جزء من
الحكومة السابقة ببعض الوجوه الجديدة .

  1. وفقط إذا حُلَّ مجلس الشعب الغير شرعي بإعتراف مبارك نفسه في خطابه الأخير .
  1. وفقط إذا وُضِعَ دستور جديد .

·     النظام خفض جيشنا اللي ضد اليهود في سينا و عمل جيش سري من
البلطجية ضد المصريين الذين يطالبون بحقوقهم بشكل سلمي .

·     مبارك في صفقته مع الأمريكان  يضحى بالشعب و البلد من أجل
الكرسي و تأمين ثروته و مكان له و لعائلته .

·     و في صفقته مع الأمريكان هو لا يؤمِّن لإنتقال سلمي للحكم بل
يؤمِّن حكومة عميلة بديلة بوجوه جديدة.

مدنية و يضرب المتظاهرين العزل بقنابل المولوتوف الحارقة و يدهسهم
بالخيول و الجمال  و يمنع الإسعاف من إنقاذ المصابين ويمنع وصول الطعام
والمساعدات الطبية لهم و يدَّعي أنه يحافظ على أمن البلاد .

·     يقول في خطابة أن قوات الشرطة الشرفاء هم للحفاظ على أمن البلاد
ثم يصدر القرار بإنسحاب قوات الشرطة من كل أرجاء البلاد بعد أن أطلق
المساجين و قام بتسليحهم تاركاً الجبهة الداخلية للبلاد عارية .

·     النظام و رجال الأعمال و السياسيين المنتفعين منه يرسلون بلطجية
النظام و جيش سري من الداخلية  في لباس ملكي بالخيول والجمال والأسلحة
البيضاء لدهس المتظاهرين السِلميين وذبحهم .

·     جيش مبارك السري يلقي بقنابل المولوتوف على المتظاهرين الشرفاء
الذين ينادون بمظاهرات سلمية .

·     مبارك يدَّعي أنه يحافظ على مقدرات هذا الوطن و يقوم بإحراق
تاريخه (المتحف المصري) بقنابل المولوتوف للضغط على المتظاهرين الشرفاء
لأنه يعلم جيدا أنهم يخافون على تاريخهم كمن يهدد بالإعتداء على أمك أو
أختك .

أسئلة و أجوبة

§   س- لماذا نرفض الحكومة التي شكلها مبارك ؟

  1. نرفض لأن ما لا يقل عن نصف الحكومة الجديدة من أفراد الحكومة

الفاسدة السابقة .

  1. نرفض لان وزير الداخلية الجديد و رجاله حتى الآن لم يشاركوا في

أنشطة وزارة الداخلية الشرعية من حفظ أمن الشعب و خدمتة - فقط إكتفى
بتغيير الشعار و تغيير ملابس رجال الشرطة الى ملابس مدنية  و استعان
بالبلطجية لتكوين قواته الجديدة .

  1. وزير الداخلية و رجاله يستخدمون قنابل المولوتوف الحارقة و السلاح

الأبيض و الرصاص الحي و الخيل و الجمال لقتل و قمع و ترويع المتظاهرين
العزل الذين ينادون بمظاهرات سلمية و يمنعون وصول المساعدات الطبية و
الطعام للمتظاهرين السلميين  و إن لم يكن هو و رجاله فمن يفعل ذلك ؟؟ و
لماذا يقفون متفرجون ولا إييييييييه؟؟؟؟&# 1567;؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟ 67;؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟؟ ;؟

و إن كان لا يعرف فلا تعليق  و لا إييييييييييييي&# 1610;يييه.

§   س- لماذا نرفض عمر سليمان ؟

§     لأن عليه الكثير من العلامات و التساؤلات منها :

  1. علاقته بصفقة الغاز المريبة مع إسرائيل و التي فاز بها رجل أعمال

صديق شخصي لرئيس الموساد السابق شابطاي شافيت و الذي تربطه علاقة صداقة
قوية بالسيد عمر سليمان.

  1. و لأن إسرائيل تعتبره الضامن الوحيد لعملية السلام معها - لماذا يا ترى؟
  1. و لأن له الكثير من التجاوزات الحقوقية في علاقته بالجماعات

الإسلامية في التسعينيات و أيضا في تنسيقة مع السي أي إيه جهاز المخابرات
الأمريكية في شبكة السجون السرية  لإعتقال و تعذيب المعارضين للنظام
العالمي الجديد.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
