Police turn away anti-Morsi April 6 protests in Egypt | DW

Police turn away anti-Morsi April 6 protests in Egypt | DW | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egyptian police have stopped dissidents from storming a court and the prosecutor-general's office in central Cairo. Violence between Christians and Muslims in Egypt has also left five people dead, security officials say.

Security forces in Cairo used tear gas to prevent protesters from reaching a Cairo court and the office of the prosecutor-general on Saturday, according to witness reports. State news agency MENA also noted a major protest in al-Fayoum, to the south of Cairo. The government agency reported that eight people were injured and seven taken to hospital, citing the Health Ministry.

Nationwide protests were slated, and in Cairo on Saturday some 500 people marched through the city center, chanting "The people want to topple the regime" on the fifth anniversary of the founding of the opposition April 6 youth movement, which began when Egypt was ruled by ousted President Hosni Mubarak.

Des milliers d'Égyptiens manifestent contre Morsi

Des milliers d'Égyptiens manifestent contre Morsi | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Des milliers de personnes ont manifesté samedi à travers l’Égypte pour dénoncer le président Mohammed Morsi et rappeler les objectifs de la révolution de 2011.

Ces rassemblements marquaient le cinquième anniversaire de la création du Mouvement de la jeunesse du 6 avril en 2008 sous le règne de l’ancien président Hosni Moubarak. Des travailleurs à Mahalla avait alors déchiré une photo du dictateur, un geste risqué à l’époque.

 

Le groupe a également joué un rôle primordial dans le soulèvement populaire ayant mené à la chute de Moubarak.

Après avoir soutenu M. Morsi lors du second tour des élections présidentielles de juin dernier, le Mouvement s’est récemment retourné contre lui.(...)

 

Les Frères musulmans, dont Mohammed Morsi est issu, ont déclaré que les protestataires devaient contester les décisions du président aux urnes et non dans la rue.

April 6 Movement to protest Morsy for its anniversary | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

On the anniversary of its founding, April 6 Youth Movement announced on Monday that it was organizing a “Day of Anger” to protest against “President Mohamed Morsy’s violations of his promises, and the increase of corruption, chaos and poverty.”

The movement said on a statement posted to their official Facebook page, “It’s time that we tell Morsy enough is enough." The group added that it was calling for peaceful protests, under the slogan “our power is our peacefulness.”

“To every worker, employee, farmer or student, to every mother or housewife, to every Egyptian, we have been patient for long,” the statement said.

The group alleged in the statement that Egyptians are facing “an increase in corruption, chaos, poverty, prices, unemployment and an increase in thuggery,” and that as a result they were calling for the president to step down.

Égypte: un groupe veut envoyer Morsi dans l'espace

Égypte: un groupe veut envoyer Morsi dans l'espace | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Un groupe d’opposition égyptien a trouvé un moyen original de protester contre le président Mohammed Morsi: l’inscrire à un concours dont le grand prix est un voyage dans l’espace.

Le Mouvement du 6 avril a annoncé jeudi sur sa page Facebook qu’il avait inscrit le leader islamiste au concours en ligne parce qu’il voulait se débarrasser de lui. Il a exhorté ses partisans à voter pour M. Morsi afin qu’il soit déclaré gagnant.

L’organisation a été l’un des moteurs du soulèvement populaire ayant causé la chute du régime de l’ex-président Hosni Moubarak. Plusieurs de ses membres ont appuyé Mohammed Morsi lors des élections présidentielles de juin 2012, au terme desquelles il est devenu le premier président démocratiquement élu de l’Égypte.

Clashes erupt between police and protesters at unemployment sit-in

Demonstrators and police clashed in front of Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil's home after a sit-in protesting unemployment in the country, officials said.

The April 6 Youth Movement had arranged the week-long sit-in in Dokki to protest to rising unemployment, Egypt Independent reported Monday. At least 3.4 million Egyptians were unemployed during the second half of 2012, reports by the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics indicated.

Police said they arrested April 6 member Mohamed al-Assad after he allegedly threw a gasoline bomb at a police truck at Qandil's home.


Another April 6 member, Mohamed Kamal, said al-Assad was not responsible for the incident because it was an infiltrator hired at the scene who threw the improvised explosive.

Twelve other people at the sit-in were also arrested, al-Ahram Online reported

April 6 Youth Movement discusses new political party with Sabbahi

April 6 Youth Movement discusses new political party with Sabbahi | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Former presidential candidate and Popular Current founder Hamdeen Sabbahi met with members of the political bureau of the April 6 Youth Movement Friday evening to discuss the formation of “a new revolutionary political alliance, that does not include remnants of the former regime,” said a statement issued by the movement on Saturday.

The statement said the meeting saw “an exchange of views on the current situation and mutual opinions on how to get out of the crisis.”

The meeting also reportedly discussed the need to build a strong revolutionary alliance without any figures considered symbols of the former regime.

April 6 Youth Movement founder Ahmed Maher said that such efforts aimed “to restore the political balance and stand against tyranny," and said that the new alliance would use an organized framework to build agreement among all parties.

Maher added that the April 6 Youth Movement is not seeking to run for the upcoming House of Representatives elections and does not intend to submit any candidates, but thinks of itself as a conscience movement linking different national parties.

He said that the movement is concerned with building and supporting an electoral list that reflects the revolution.

According to Maher, the meeting came within a series of meetings held by representatives of the April 6 Youth Movement with different political forces, parties, writers and thinkers to unify their efforts.

The movement's political bureau members who participated in the meeting included Mohamed Sami, Mohamed Ibrahim, Mahmoud Afify, Ingy Hamdy and Amal Sherif.

Opposition groups mark 6 April anniversary | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Marches across Cairo took place on Saturday, marking the anniversary of the 6 April 2008 general strike in Mahalla. The marches were led by the 6 April Youth Movement and members of the Al-Dostour Party, Al-Tayar Al-Shaaby, the Free Egyptians Party, the Revolutionary Socialist Party and the Free Front for Peaceful Change participated.

In Cairo marches began in Shubra, Al-Sayeda Zeinab, Imbaba and at the Mostafa Mahmoud mosque.

Ahmed Fadel, a Masr Al-Qawia member from Qalyubia, said he was marching from Shubra to make three demands. His first demand was to see the Prosecutor General removed, saying Egyptians had been calling for the removal of the previous Prosecutor General for a long time but the current holder of the position was appointed in the same manner as his predecessor. “We are seeing the same problems that we saw under [former President Hosni] Mubarak’s appointed Prosecutor General,” Fadel said.

Egypt's April 6 movement condemns anti-Brotherhood violence

Egypt's April 6 movement condemns anti-Brotherhood violence | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

Egypt's April 6 Youth Movement has condemned the violence that took place at Muslim Brotherhood's offices across Egypt on Friday.
"The revolution is not about stones, Molotov cocktails or torching offices. Our demand for justice does not mean that we take it by force," the group said in a statement on its official Facebook page late Friday.
However, the group also said the Muslim Brotherhood prompted the escalation of events.

Interior Ministry denies responsibility for activist's disappearance

Interior Ministry denies responsibility for activist's disappearance | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Interior Ministry denied reports Wednesday that the National Security Agency had detained Khaled al-Aqqad, a member of the April 6 Youth-Democratic Front Movement.

A statement for the ministry said the NSA is not responsible for Aqqad's disappearance, adding that all procedures the agency takes comply with the law.

The April 6 Youth-Democratic Front Movement announced Monday that Aqqad disappeared last Wednesday on his way home, accusing the Interior MInistry and the National Security Agency of being responsible.

Members of the movement marched to Tahrir Square Tuesday, following a protest outside the prosecutor generals office denouncing Aqqad's disappearance and chanting against the government, Prime Minister Hesham Qandil's Cabinet and Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim.

Protesters also demanded an investigation into Aqqad's disappearance, and one movement member, Sherif al-Rouby, claimed Aqqad disappeared after refusing to spy for the National Security Agency.

April 6 shuns presidency's invitation for dialogue

April 6 shuns presidency's invitation for dialogue | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The April 6 Youth Movement has rejected an invitation for dialogue that President Mohamed Morsy made in a pre-recorded interview shown aired in the early hours of Monday morning.

Mohamed Morsy called for another national dialogue session at Ettehadiya Presidential Palace on Tuesday, extending his call to the call to several Islamist and opposition groups. The president said the meeting would address how to guarantee free and fair elections.

The opposition has voiced reservations on some aspects of the recently-approved election law, and have already announced that they would boycott the polls scheduled to begin 22 April.

In a statement on Tuesday morning, the April 6 Youth Movement said it rejects the invitation in protest of “Morsy's unilateral decisions” that are taken “without consultation with political groups.”

“President Morsy called for parliamentary elections without consulting anyone, and in disregard of political forces objections to the election law and the delineation of constituencies,” the group's statement said.

Group founder Ahmed Maher said, “Dialogue on elections after setting their date is exactly the same as dialogue over the Constitution after the referendum was held.”

On 2nd Anniversary Of Egypt's Uprising, Little To Celebrate

On 2nd Anniversary Of Egypt's Uprising, Little To Celebrate | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Egypt marks the second anniversary of the uprising that swept Hosni Mubarak from power with little to celebrate. Deeply divided and facing an economic crisis, the nation is bracing for more protests, but this time against a freely elected leader.

President Mohamed Morsi's opponents plan to march to Tahrir Square on Friday to vent anger at the new Islamist leader and his Muslim Brotherhood backers, whom they accuse of betraying the goals of the Jan. 25 revolution that galvanised Egyptians in a display of national unity that has not been seen since.

 

We don't see it as a celebration. This will be a new revolutionary wave that will show the Brotherhood that they are not alone - that there are other forces that can stand against them," said Ahmed Maher, founder of the April 6 - a group that helped ignite the uprising by using social media to organise.

The Brotherhood has said it will not send its supporters to Tahrir Square on Friday - a decision that at least limits the scope for more of the unrest that has compounded Egypt's economic troubles.

Instead, with its eye on forthcoming parliamentary polls, the electorially savvy Brotherhood is marking the anniversary with a campaign to help the poor. With allies, it promises to send volunteers to renovate 2,000 schools, plant trees, deliver medical aid and open "charity markets" selling affordable food.

"The importance of the anniversary is to lift the spirits of the Egyptian people: more hope and more work," said Ahmed Aref, a Muslim Brotherhood spokesman who was in Tahrir Square for the entire 18-day uprising against Mubarak.(...)

The sense of common purpose that united Egyptians against Mubarak has given way to conflict. Secularists and liberals accuse the Muslim Brotherhood of seeking to dominate the country. The Islamists say their opponents are not respecting the rules of the democratic game. (...)

"I foresee very big protests, and some civil unrest," said Elijah Zarwan of the European Council on Foreign Relations. "Two years on, a real sense of disenchantment has settled on Egypt.

"There is a fairly widespread sense that the country is slipping, socially, economically and in terms of governance. Politically, the divisions have become so fierce that it's hard to imagine the various parties and factions coming to an agreement, even on the things they agree on."
