#FreeAlaa :Back to 2005

First of all early Thursday morning there was a very small protest at El-Koubba presidential Palace. It was the first protest in front of a presidential palace after the presidential inauguration. It was also the smallest protest made of four girls only : Mona Seif , Sanaa Seif , Aida El-Kashef and Sara El-Sherif. "The photos are by Alaa El-Kamhawi"

Freedom for Alaa , Nouby and Wael


Unjust judiciary , A protest = 15 years in jail
The girls were demanding the release of the Shura council protest's detainees who were sentenced 15 years in jail including activist Alaa Abdel Fattah on Wednesday. 
In the afternoon the defendants's lawyer as well Egyptian activists held a press conference as well a protest on the famous Staircase of the Journalists syndicate. "Oh yes back to the famous staircase". Needless to say the small protest was dispersed by security forces that returned to use thugs in dispersing the protest. !! At least one person was arrested in that chaotic dispersal. (Photos by Sharif Abdel Kouddos)

This reminds me so much with 2005 and how the thugs were being used to attack protests and rallies at the journalists syndicate.
Now for those who asked here are the photos from the Shura council protest , here is a coverage for the whole day. You must know that there are several witnesses who confirmed that Alaa came late to the protest and did not attack anybody. You must know that during the trial's sessions the prosecution's eye witnesses never showed up and the defendants' attorneys demand to see the CCTV videos the prosecution claims to be a key incriminating the defendants was not answered at all.
Of course the retrial of the defendants that have been arrested "Alaa, Wael and Nouby" should arrest next week.

  1. Wow you people are melodramatic, The fact is you broke the law and YOU ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW. And of course you forgot to mention that Alla Abd El-Fattah was sentenced in absentia which in an Egyptian court of law automatically means a maximum sentence and an instant retrial once the defendant is present. And all i see from the pictures is that the police used no illegal means to disperse the protest , there was no unnecessary violence,What did you expect? They are going to give you cookies? ,Get over yourselves.
