Omar Sharif, last Egyptian world star, speaks

Omar Sharif, last Egyptian world star, speaks | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Having spent many years living around the world, in France in particular, he is now back in Egypt. Despite the violence of the last few days, he still has hope for his country. "I am with the people and I believe that the revolution must go forwards". Given that he does not have his own home in Cairo, Omar Sharif watched the clashes "from the balcony of the Semiramis hotel", a few yards from Tahrir Square. Like millions of Egyptians, he fears the advance of the Muslim Brotherhood and hopes that the military will soon abandon power. Of Marshal Tantawi, he says: "He has taken a river of money, getting rich off Egypt's back together with other men connected to Mubarak". When it comes to Arab cinema, however, Sharif's outlook is entirely negative. "Arab and Egyptian cinema," he says with a grave expression, "have neither great directors nor internationally renowned actors". (ansamed.info)

In Egypt, measuring gap between activists, 'silent majority'

In Egypt, measuring gap between activists, 'silent majority' | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Home to ancient burial grounds, the City of the Dead is only a few miles from Tahrir Square, the main protest site for the revolutionaries, but it is far from the world of the elites who are battling to shape Egypt's future political system. It is home to many impoverished people in a country where 40% of the people make less than $2 a day.

People here are more concerned with figuring out how they are going to feed their families than changing the path of their nation's politics.

"The military council needs to stay governing," said Sami Ibrahim, 32, sitting on a stoop between tombs. "If they step down, the country will be even more chaotic than it is now."

The disparity between average Egyptian interests and those of the political elite is evident in campaigns for parliamentary elections. Although some of Egypt's newly formed political parties have been savvy in appealing to Egyptians, political analysts say parties have not fully addressed one of the public's primary concerns."

Egypte: manifestation de la "dernière chance" place Tahrir pour le départ du pouvoir militaire

"Des milliers d'Egyptiens étaient déjà rassemblés vendredi matin sur l'emblématique place Tahrir au Caire pour participer à une manifestation baptisée de "la dernière chance" et destinée à réclamer une fois de plus le départ du pouvoir militaire..Les rues menant au ministère de l'Intérieur non loin de la place, qui avaient été le théâtre de violents affrontements ces derniers jours, étaient encore bloquées, selon un journaliste de l'AFP sur place.

Outre le départ immédiat de l'armée du pouvoir, les manifestants, qui occupent Tahrir pour le huitième jour consécutif, demandent la poursuite des responsables de la mort de 41 personnes --dont 36 au Caire-- survenues lors de violents heurts entre forces de l'ordre et des contestataires."

MSF approvisionne cinq hôpitaux en matériel médical | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Depuis les six derniers jours, le Caire ainsi que d’autres villes égyptiennes sont en proie aux troubles qui ont fait des dizaines de morts et un grand nombre de blessés.

Au Caire, de violents conflits ont éclaté autour de la place Tahrir, où la situation peut empirer d’un moment à l’autre. Des bénévoles égyptiens travaillent dans des hôpitaux de campagne afin de prodiguer des soins médicaux aux blessés. Le ministère de la Santé gère des cliniques mobiles, fournit des ambulances et a demandé aux hôpitaux les plus proches de soigner les blessés.

Une équipe de Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) s’est rendue à la place Tahrir presque chaque jour. Elle est en contact avec des professionnels de la santé égyptiens qui œuvrent dans les hôpitaux de campagne, ainsi que dans les hôpitaux publics qui accueillent la majorité des blessés. L’organisation a fait don de médicaments et de matériel médical et chirurgical à quatre hôpitaux au Caire." (MSF)

The leaning towers of Alexandria

The leaning towers of Alexandria | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"The city of 100,000 illegal buildings or the leaning towers of Alexandria: the article could be called either or both of these titles. These are the facts, and the statistics could not be more accurate. Unfortunately, even a simple glimpse at Alexandria, or a walk through its streets, is enough to indicate the truth of either. The statistics may even be underestimating a bare truth people have been trying to overlook: the beautiful city of Alexandria, once one of the Mediterranean's most cultivated, is falling into disrepair as a result of illegal building and chaotic planning."

Ganzouri Tapped for Prime Minister, Rejected by Tahrir Square

Ganzouri Tapped for Prime Minister, Rejected by Tahrir Square | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Chief of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, Field Marshal Mohammad Hussain Tantawi received former Prime Minister Kamal Al Ganzori at the Ministry of Defense’s headquarters in Hadaek Al Kobba on Thursday.The meeting is believed to be part of SCAF’s consultations to form a new government to succeed that of Essam Sharaf’s, whose resignation was accepted recently.

Sources close to Ganzori said he accepted heading the new government after the meeting with Tantawi, during which he was tasked with forming a national salvation government.

The sources confirmed that Ganzori, who approved the offer in principle, will begin forming his government immediately.

This came as Tahrir Square demonstrators expressed their rejection to the nomination of Ganzori; a prime minister under the toppled regime of former President Hosni Mubarak." (25TV)

Egitto: in piazza si uccide, su Facebook ci si scusa. Le condoglianze della Giunta militare

"Nell'epoca del web 2.0 tutto pare essere diventato più leggero, impalpabile come i bit che creano la sensazione di compresenza anche tra chi vive a migliaia di chilometri di distanza. Se non è il corpo a essere condiviso, lo possono essere i pensieri e i sentimenti. Quante volte abbiamo sentito dire che ciò che importa davvero è quello che si ha dentro e non come si è fuori? La leggerezza del virtuale ci dà la possibilità di troncare rapporti sentimentali semplicemente selezionando un'opzione diversa da un menù a cascata, ci concede di fare sentire amici anche quelle persone, i cui sguardi poi per strada eviteremo di incrociare e a quanto pare, secondo alcuni, può far evaporare il senso di colpa. Anche quello dettato dall'avere responsabilità per l'uccisione di altri uomini. L'aria virtuale non puzza di morte, neanche quando si è degli assassini. Forse si potranno imbrattare di sangue le lettere sulla tastiera, ma i nostri 'amici' non verranno a saperlo. A loro arriverà soltanto il nostro dispiacere. Finto." (Simone Olivelli/newnotizie)

They include the almost 3,000-year-old coffin of a High Priest named Iahtefnakt, which was carefully conserved over nine months before its unveiling." (Laura Allsop/CNN)

Kamal Ganzouri premier ministre "avec les pleins pouvoirs"

Kamal Ganzouri premier ministre "avec les pleins pouvoirs" | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Les militaires égyptiens ont nommé Kamal El-Ganzouri premier ministre "avec les pleins pouvoirs", selon la télévision égyptienne. Des télévisions privées égyptiennes avaient déjà annoncé la veille, en début de soirée, que l'ancien premier ministre d'Hosni Moubarak, entre 1996 et 1999, avait été chargé par le Conseil suprême des forces armées (CSFA) de former un nouveau gouvernement.

Au moment de cette annonce, des milliers d'Egyptiens étaient rassemblés sur la place Tahrir, au Caire, pour une manifestation dite de "la dernière chance" réclamant une fois de plus le départ immédiat du pouvoir militaire. Mohamed ElBaradei, ancien haut fonctionnaire international, a rejoint les manifestants. Ces derniers ne partiront de la place qu'une fois leurs revendications satisfaites, a affirmé l'imam conduisant la prière sur la place. Dans son sermon, il a également réclamé le transfert immédiat du pouvoir à un gouvernement de "salut national". (Le Monde)

Graffiti artists tag the streets in Egypt and Tunisia

Graffiti artists tag the streets in Egypt and Tunisia | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"No vandalism. No weapons. Just art.

At least that is the way revolutionaries who use public spaces see it.

Graffiti has been a popular form of expression around the world, and Egypt and Tunisia are no exception as street art has been used as a means to encourage individual thought and encourage the youth to shape the future of their political landscape.

A group that calls itself the “Freedom Painters” has taken to the streets of Cairo’s downtown hub Nasr City with stenciling tools and spray paints to spread their message.

Covering the walls of the city with slogans such as “Vote” and “It’s just the beginning,” the group is a 1000-strong army actively engaging with the future of their country.

One mural shows a grumpy man set aside what appears to be a road sign with the words “I want my rights,” written in Arabic. Another mural shows an attractive woman with flowing hair that is the colors of the Egyptian flag." (Arfad Al-Janabi/Al-Arabiya)

Entre-temps, loin des manifestations de masses spectaculaires, c’est parmi les salariés que la révolution s’est poursuivie avec des grèves, des blocages et des occupations. Les mouvements de salariés, largement ignorés des médias internationaux ont été et restent au centre du processus révolutionnaire engagé en Egypte." (Mina Zapatero/Regards)

Using the dead in Egypt for political gain

Using the dead in Egypt for political gain | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"Top Egyptian politician Mohamed ElBaradei visited Tahrir Square on Friday to pay his respects to those who died over the past week in Egypt’s bloodiest clashes since the uprising ousted Hosni Mubarak. Now, after a week that saw over 90 people dead, medical sources told Bikyamasr.com, the politicians are once more showing their support for the fallen. (...)

In February, following the 18 days of protests, politicians were quick to throw their support behind the families of the “martyrs” in an effort to gain popularity and be seen as supporters of the cause.(...)

Here in Egypt, politicians are becoming savvy on this front, issuing statements in support of the families of those who perished, those who were killed and the protesters, even as they sit in their chalets outside Cairo, embelleshing themselves in the modern world.

In Tahrir on Friday, as calls for a million man march were being heard and people poured into the square, the same was happening once again. But this time, activists were split.

“What has ElBaradei done for Egypt?” one activist asked me. When I tried to explain that ElBaradei was working behind the scenes to end the stand-off between demonstrators and police during the past week, I was rebuffed." (Joseph Mayton)

Egypte : les violations des droits humains doivent cesser (invitation à signer la pétition d'Amnesty International France) | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Texte de la pétition :

"Message au chef du Conseil Suprême des Forces armées, le maréchal Tantaoui

Monsieur le maréchal,

J'appelle le Conseil suprême des forces armées à protéger les manifestants, à arrêter l’usage excessif de la force, et à mettre fin aux procès militaires de civils.

Je suis profondément préoccupé par la répression de plus en plus sanglante des manifestations en Égypte. Les incidents où les forces militaires et de sécurité sont soupçonnées d'avoir fait un usage excessif de la force doivent faire l’objet d’enquêtes diligentes, indépendantes et impartiales, conformément aux normes et aux lois internationales. Je suis également préoccupé par le fait que, depuis le déploiement des forces armées fin janvier, des milliers de civils ont été confrontés à des procès inéquitables devant des tribunaux militaires. Ces procès portent atteinte au droit à un procès équitable et public devant un tribunal compétent, indépendant et impartial, établi par la loi - y compris le droit de faire appel devant une juridiction supérieure.

J'exhorte le CSFA à protéger les manifestants ainsi qu’à mettre fin aux procès militaires de civils."

Election 2011 : Islamist election map

Election 2011 : Islamist election map | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

"The 2011 parliamentary elections are not only the first to be held in post- revolutionary Egypt but also the first in which the full gamut of Islamist movements and factions will take part. The Salafis, Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya, Jihad and the Sufis have never before participated in the political process. For some, such as the Salafis, non-participation was voluntary. Before the revolution they shunned political involvement, denouncing it as sinful and the democratic process as heretic. While in the past Muslim Brotherhood members fielded themselves as independents, with the creation of the Freedom and Justice Party the group is now participating in an official capacity.

With their newly formed political parties, the Salafis and Al-Gamaa Al-Islamiya are encroaching onto what was once a Muslim Brotherhood preserve. Until the revolution, the Muslim Brotherhood had been the sole representative of the Islamist trend in the political process. In part because of public sympathy at the way it was repressed by the regime it became a formidable opposition force and succeeded in making major inroads in syndicate, municipal and parliamentary elections."

"Egyptians as I've known them, and grown up among them, have always been able to differentiate between governments and people -- their own and others. This is true of Egyptians BR and PR (Before Revolution and After Revolution). They may be illiterate, but they are also shrewd. They may be uneducated, but they are not uninformed. Of course the Revolution accelerated this and served as a crash course in political awareness because suddenly people discovered they could actually do something and participate in their own governance/destiny."
