Protests in Egypt: Your experiences
30-6-Egypt Vs Morsy
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
In Godfather III (the movie) there’s unforgettable dialogue between the Pope and Don Michael Corleone, Pope says:
“Look at this stone. It has been in the water for a very long time, but the water has not penetrated it.
-Pope cracks the stone-
The same thing has happened to men in Europe.
For centuries they have been surrounded by Christianity, but Christ has not penetrated.
Christ doesn't live within them.”
This is exactly what happened to Egyptian people, two and a half years since the revolution, protests, marches, strikes, Sit-ins, martyrs etc..
And millions of Egyptians never believed in the revolution, but today, 30-6-2013 everything has changed!
People went to the street for the first time to express their anger and to say NO to Morsy and his gang.
Egyptian people (and I can say that almost all of them) knew what really the revolution is all about!
It’s about expressing your refusal to unjust actions of any regime, to say it out loudly, I don’t accept this!
The whole day with millions in almost all of Egypt streets demanding Morsy to step down, is something beyond description.
Egyptian got united finally, with all the political points of views, on one man's heart: Step down, Morsy!
He, Morsy, still has his minor supporters, but he really know how he’s popular in the Egyptian streets. He lost 99% of his support from ordinary people. He has to move from denial phase really quickly and start to react reasonably to Egyptians demands.
