Egyptian activists abroad are organising protests for the continuation of the revolution and calling for the downfall of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) on 25 January 2012. Revolutionaries in Egypt will be also mobilising on that day, which marks the anniversary of the beginning of the revolution.
All those in Egypt and around the world who are continuing the fight for the revolution’s goals of bread, freedom and social justice still need our solidarity and support. A year after Mubarak’s fall, Mubarak’s generals are still in power, and have become ever more brutal in their efforts to crush dissent.
Yet the Egyptian people have shown they will continue the struggle. Workers’ strikes and protests continue on a daily basis across the country demanding better wages and conditions at work, decent jobs and to rid workplaces of corrupt bosses linked to the old ruling party. Revolutionary activists have refused to be intimidated by the SCAF’s attempts to beat them off the streets, and are organising dozens of local protests and events to expose the military council’s lies about protesters.
Demonstrations in solidarity with the revolution on 21-25 January are already planned in the following cities:
