Uprising Diary 1

Alexandria walls

When the captain said "welcome, we're landing in Cairo airport now" I couldn't hide longing to see the new Egypt and the new Egyptians after January 25th , comparing the way of living and treating after and before that historic day especially to compare between the media and the reality.

I am not a journalist or working for any kind of media which means I don't have agenda or be paid for what I am typing here.Thanks to Blogger.com . This is a kind of diary wrote to express my -may be useless- point of view about all whats happening here as an Egyptian , Liberal , Christian and that's all.

I'm Egyptian .. I'm Revolutionary


First of all I want to illuminate something. My generation was accused of not belonging enough to Egypt by the elder generations. they blame us for living virtual life on the internet using virtual social networks , listening Jazz , Pop , Rock , Hiphop , Rap and other kinds of western music.Western Artists are beloved more. They said the Globalization is an imperial plan to make the youth negative. Now, my father respects me more. Now, he's asking me about my opinion in everything, thanks to the internet.

May God bless KHALID SAEED's soul the victim of torture by the police that a group asking for his right became one of the factors making the uprising.

I think the internet may make the role of the Greek knowledge that the Italians used before to get back their glory which begins "The Renaissance".

Remarks on the first day in Alexandria streets after the uprising in January 27th

I think that all the sidewalks in the city are painted by youth which was not very common in Mubaraks era. Youth who called themselves as " January 25th youth" did all of this. they are painting , cleaning the streets , decorate everywhere with the colors of the Egyptian flag. Clearly remarked too that the moral of everyone in the street has risen to a very high standard. I criticized before the isolation between the rich and the poor people , now everybody regardless to his level was working in the street which I can consider a victory for the uprising.

About the moral of the people. a quotation from "Description de l'Egypte" ,volume I ,chapter 3 , (6)

"Egyptian is shy by nature, he avoids the danger as much as he can. But when he finds himself in risk- in spite of his care - he shows mettle you think at the beginning he hasn't, and there is nothing equal to his composure at the same time complacency.

This proves what we have already said before that the reform of the regime will happen very easily, and that people will get back all the virtues which they lost, even they do not think it's latent in . It will awaken each feelings of nobility, ambition and greatness of spirit that hung by those satanic regimes they suffered from."


BUT I believe the moral , all kinds of good principles collapse before the feeling of hunger or need . SO we have to start the hard work urgently to build our economy and help poor people in parallel.


About the negative side, the streets become not safe anymore, for the people expressed their anger from the violence that causes a lot of victims by burning the police stations down , so all the police men took off their official uniform and stayed home.
that's right the police like any other foundation is corrupted , but for me I'm totally against any kind of violence .

So dozens of bullies spread all over the country making horrible unsafe nights and a lot of stores, people, foundations were stolen. some says that's a plan from the men of Mubarak to revenge ... maybe.

A lot of news - may be rumors - about killing , kidnapping , robs , rapes by criminals working free of police." Stay home to stay safe " was the warning, specially for girls.


Metro station "Mubarak" changed to "Martyrs"
Cairo


Gardens , Streets , Libraries , Stations , foundations that held the name of Mubarak had had another name like "Martyrs" , "revolution ".... etc.


Many
public foundations , companies , newspapers turned into a small Egypt after the step down of Mubarak. The workers and clerks fired their chiefs accusing them of corruption and taking illegal commissions including the company my mother working for.
