Army officer in Arish allegedly raped a British peace activist in May

An Army officer in Arish allegedly raped a British peace activist in May. Military prosecution detained her when she filed a complaint. Nothing happened to the officer.

In this Guardian article the UK foreign office is apologetic on failing to help her during filing the complaint.

On Admitting Michael Nabil to a Mental Hospital

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Mon, 24/10/2011 - 11:21am

I have to highlight how important it is that Michael Nabil is not a suspect in a violent crime. The military courts are trying him over a blog post that criticises the army, not killing or stabbing anyone.

Michael has passed the 50 days mark in his hunger strike.

He was referred to a mental hospital for observation for 45 days when his court appointed lawyers defended him saying that he is suffering from mental problems.

This is outrageous because:

Guardian: Cairo witnesses blame security forces for bloodshed at Coptic march

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Wed, 12/10/2011 - 9:58am

Many people were screaming, women were crying and running almost immediately and add to that the fact once the beating started with sticks, within a few minutes we started hearing gunfire which it seems like – from some of the casualties I saw – were not blank rounds.

They were live rounds being used very, very quickly. It was an incredibly violent show of force … it was chaos for a while.

شهادة لبنى على مجزرة ماسبيرو

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Tue, 11/10/2011 - 4:50pm

ساعتها كنت بقيت عند هيلتون رمسيس على النيل، و أغلب الناس ال فضلت كانت معي، كنت واقفة في وسط الطريقة باحاول أفهم ال بيحصل، فجأة لقينا ناس بتزعق فينا علشان نطلع على الرصيف، جرينا، لقينا مدرعتين جيش بيرجوا بسرعة جنونية في وسط الشارع ال مليان ناس. الأول افتكرتهم جنود أغبياء و هيموتونا بغباءهم. و بعدين المدرعات ابتدت تجري بسرعة مجنونة رايح جاي في الشارع، تجري في زيج زاج، تشوف مجموعة بتحاول تهرب فتجري وراهم، تطلع فوي الرصيف و تدهس ناس، تشوف ناس الناحية التانية فتحود تدوس عليهم. ماكنتش مصدقة نفسي، كنت مرعوبة.

Sarah Carr's account of the Maspero Massacre

And then it happened: an APC mounted the island in the middle of the road, like a maddened animal on a rampage. I saw a group of people disappear, sucked underneath it. It drove over them. I wasn’t able to see what happened to them because it then started coming in my direction.

Read it here.

You can also listen to her account of what happened in a phone interview with CBC radio.

مجزرة ماسبيرو

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Sun, 09/10/2011 - 11:41pm

بعد أن شهد طنطاوي لصالح مبارك في المحكمة، وشهادتة كانت عكس أول حديث له للشعب من كلية الشرطة، أطلق جنوده بالمدرعات لسحق المتظاهرين السلميين أمام مبنى الأذاعة والتليفيزيون بماسبيرو. المظاهرة كانت مسيرة تندد بالهجوم اللي حدث لكنيسة في أسوان. كنسية أسوان كان سادس حادث أعتداء على الأقباط وكنائسهم من المسلمين.

في الأيام التاليه كان الأعلام الرسمي مليان ناس بتتكلم عن أن الهجوم على الكنيسة خطأ لأن الأقباط مكانش معاهم تصريح وناس تانية قالت أن قبة الكنيسة حسب القانون ممنوع أن ترتفع أكثر من 4 أمتار. المهم اللوم كان على من لم يهجم و يدمر. وخرج أحد المتهمين بكفالة 500 جنية.

Or rather 6 images of million man marches* (millionyyat) super-imposed on each other.

This was created with a Gimp plug-in that I wrote. This has a limitation of superimposing up to 100 photos.

Here are other samples created by the plug-in.

Three protesters died in the clashes that followed the break into the Israeli embassy. The description says that this man was killed by central security forces. Eyewitnesses on that day said they also saw police vehicles speeding and hitting protesters.

This is a phone interview recorded with Margaret Prescod of Radio KPFK on the 2nd of February at around 3pm that day.

The phone call is super imposed on videos I took with Sarah Carr's flip camera.

One of the shots was taken by Youssef Faltas.

Khaled Said 2

Mostafa Hussein, Blogging on the wrong side - Mon, 06/06/2011 - 1:20am

I remember when I first heard about Khaled Said's case. I didn't take notice of the name. Mohamed Abdel Aziz, the young and brilliant Nadim lawyer, sent and internal email saying that he contacted the family of a young man in Alexandria who they claim died from torture but the police says he fell from an ambulance stretcher.

Zahi Hawass thinks Mubarak was a good leader until..

In an interview with Al Jazeera when asked about Mubarak, Zahi Hawass said:

Egypt is going to introduce nationwide cricket clubs. They are going to postpone all games until the teams are strong enough. Fans are expected to back clubs before they play any game. Before seeing how exciting the game is or which team has the better players.

That's why expecting us to back political parties and join them before they perform in parliament is rubbish.

رجل مبتسم في التحرير مساءا

لازم نقرا تاريخنا. عمرنا ما كان لينا الفرصة اننا نتحكم في مصيرنا زي النهارده. لازم نثبت السلطة في أيدينا أحنا الناس، عامة الشعب. بما في ذلك الفقير واﻷمي. ومش في أيدين قلة حاكمة زي ماكان الوضع لآلاف السنين.

مش هانعظم لمجموعة حكام علشان انجازاتهم ولا نلومهم لتخلفنا تاني. فقط هانهني أنفسنا ونلوم أنفسنا.
