Politik Afrika (Mesir)

byk sungguh cite politik africa (yup, mesir ni africa, north africa) selepas sudan dan ivory coast, muncul kisah tunisia, then egypt... and dengar cite nya algeria is soon... kisah revolution kat mesir ni, menyebabkan aku terpana kat depan tv follow the stories... for those yg tak berapa follow (yeah and i understand cite pasal mesir ni tak really well told kat tv malaysia pun :-) ) so here is the summary...

First Part:
The first episode of Egypt Burning tells the story of five days in January 2011 when the people of Egypt broke through a barrier of fear they had known for a generation and rose in revolt against their president.

Anger had long been brewing in Egypt - strikes, unemployment and sectarian tension were on the rise.

Small networks of activists had been agitating against Hosni Mubarak's autocratic rule for years. But it was only when another Arab country, Tunisia, rose up against its tyrant that the Egyptian activists attracted mass support.

People took to the streets across Egypt demanding political freedoms, an end to state corruption and a better quality of life for the impoverished population.

second part:
After seven days of mass protests, a people's movement had taken hold of the country.

At Tahrir Square in the centre of the Egyptian capital, Cairo, the police had melted away. The army had moved in, but was doing nothing to stop the protests.

Full of hope and sensing that the regime might be cracking, the protesters called for a million people to gather and voice their demand that Hosni Mubarak step down. But the regime was about to fight back.

hope this helps you to understand further on what's happening kat mesir tu.

(sorry been so malas utk tulis, i will update the blog and backdate the stories, skit lagi ada entry sblm entry ni)
