Massive Expression Of Solidarity!

Dear Friends,

This is what it was like yesterday, thousands and thousands of people , not only along the corniche but in every street….I went out at around six o’clock and could hardly believe what I saw, people from all different classes, rich and poor, all mingling, all sharing their grievances, children, people in wheel chairs ,loads of women, in burqa, veiled , in skin tight jeans and sleeveless tops with their hair flowing in the wind ,  chanting together “ERHAL”” Leave”  to Morsi. Rue Horreya was like a carnival promenade, people came out from the slums carrying slogans that read “ No electricity, no water, no bread, no solar, just leave”. It was a show of absolute human solidarity.

 We were not given the day off yesterday but , I was told, that no one came to work. Today, only a few of us are back at the BA. People are afraid that if they came to work, they would not be able to get back home . The streets in the morning were almost empty but the crowds will return in the afternoon…it is very hot outside right now but they will return.

Warm regards
