So, the new constitutional ammendments (which, if you wanna know how much they mess things up for egyptians, I recommend you read this) are being tested in a public referendum tomorrow, one that the Opposition wants, as usual, to boycott. Sometimes they remind me of that kid that no one picks on their team to play with, so instead he claims to think that sports are stupid. Anyway…
So the government just declared that it won't allow or tolerate any demonstration against the constitutional ammendments, in order to stop those opposition people from "delaying, opposing and stalling the democratic process". I am not kidding, I am just not sure of they are not either! Cause, you see, whenever I read things like that, I wonder if the people who write this stuff do it while laughing hysterically. They must. Seriously!
So, the demonstration is today. 6 pm in Tahrir square. The Police are expected to show up and try to run after, beat up and arrest anyone that moves in downtown. Given that this sounds like incredible fun, I am so going to that thing. I just won't bring my camera. Don't really want to get that smashed! Also, the opposition hopes- if they don't all get arrested- to have a sleep over in the middle of the square. So if you never spent the night sleeping on the pavement of one of Cairo's biggest Squares, well, this is your chance!
So Cairenes, if you do not wanna participate in the fun, make sure to go home before 5:30, cause downtown will probably get shut down today for a couple of houres. But If you have nothing better to do, and feel like playing with state secuirty in downtown cairo, you know when and where to go. 6 PM. Tahrir Square. And remember, this state doesn't recognize your rights, so therefore it is your civic duty not to recognize it back.
May the fun begin.
