#Jan25 A Message from An Egyptian to All Egyptians
Date posted: January 27, 2011
Egyptians are calling for a 1 million peaceful march all over Egypt after Friday’s prayers.
The keys for this protest to succeed are for:
The protestors to withstantd the pressure and wait long enough until the government gives in
The police and/or army to join.
I completely support people voicing their anger in a civilized and peaceful way. It's definitely better than sitting silently and doing nothing like old white heads. We've been silent for so long. Accept what's given to us without asking for our rights.
We are the people capable of change.
For those who are scared of change because of lack of options, you have to know that resisting change is a human nature. But Change is mandatory in our situation. We need to realize our power and make our own sound decisions. Even if we walk through another failure. The future remains unknown, but we can also "shape our future". The shaping of the future will be through the contribution.
The least we can do is to participate in the demonstration. I know some fellows (personally) who contributed by hacking the website of el hezb el watani. I know others who contributed by forwarding emails/sms/bbms/twitter..etc. Others contributed by joining the demos.
The protest intention is not to have the streets filled with chaos, but to have the streets filled with civilized people (basically us). We want to create a diverse segment that will threaten the government. Even for those who are not politically oriented, your head count matters.
Throughout the past 30 years, we've been moving around within our "comfort" zone. Nevertheless, people resisting change or inqelab are merely resisting walking out of their comfort zone and getting into an unknown hostile zone. But for the sake of a better future, for the sake of the thousand mile summit, we have to suffer some hardships.
Our rights will not be generously granted without us fighting for it. We have to EARN it.
Tomorrow it's a call for freedom. We need to raise our voices. We deserve it because we're a great nation. History will be made by a majority not a subset. When we are free we will be eligible to make a free choice of a new elected president. The consequences might be tough, but we are you willing to undergo worse?
All what i'm asking you for is the following:
Contributing positively towards this protest
Even if you're against the protest and do not want to participate, your silent contribution is better than your actions to put off the fire. Please stop being passive and spreading the negative energy by saying "nothing will change" or "who's better than Hosny"
If you participated, please hold on to your principles and beliefs. Do not give up easily. The government will give up if they find enough population. They cant kill their own people.
Join any 7ezb to see their agenda and contribute in the elections.
Use your skills to do something for Egypt.
