2011-02-03 Act Now to Stop Mubarak's Thugs From Killing More!

‘The chant is يسقط يسقط حسني مبارك – Tell the world he is killing us’

As the Sun rises in Cairo on the tenth day of the Egyptian uprising, the protesters opposed to the government of Hosni Mubarak still hold Tahrir Liberation Square. They still hold it in spite of a night of horrific violence by pro-Mubarak thugs that attacked the peaceful protesters with machine guns, other guns and fire bombs. Overwhelming evidence is already mounting that this murderous gang was composed of police in plain clothes, NDP functionaries and loyalist and hired thugs. The army, which in previous days made sure all the protesters that entered the square were unarmed, stood by and did nothing while the assault took place.

The goal of the thugs was to drive the protesters from the square. In this they were not successful.

The price these freedom fighters, men, women and children, have paid so far is high. As I write this, the number of dead is being put at 5, but since over 800 are reported injured, the number of deaths is likely to rise. One witness said she saw seven bodies.

But they held! They held that now bloody ground which is the symbol of their fight against a tyrant and now a beacon for the liberation of all humanity.

When night falls, the thugs will strike again.

Unless while the Sun is still shining on Cairo, the pressure of the people of the world can be brought to bear to make Mubarak call off his thugs. The U.S. bankrolls the Egyptian military to the tune of $1.3 billion USD a year. President Obama can make him call off the thugs so pressure should be put on him too.

You should make it your mission for the next 24 hours to make sure your voice is heard and tell

Mubarak, Call Off Your Thugs!

Here is one thing you can easily do for starters. Sign this petition and retweeted it to tell President Obama "to Stop all Aid to the Mubarak Regime and Condemn its Violence"

Campaigns and protests will be forming up shortly so stay tuned.

Further proof of Mubarak's involvement with the thugs:

Police offered me money to join pro Mubarak Protests

To be honest, I want to tell you something. I am unemployed, and I have a relative who works with the police who offered me money to join the pro-Mubarak protests. Frankly, I took the money and went and I know that they are all police men or those who are benefitting from the National Party, and who want the regime to stay in power. I want to let you in on the secret: they are giving money to police or to soldiers and asking them to demonstrate for Mubarak, and to bring anyone else they know so that it appears that Mubarak has lots of supporters. To be honest, I am ashamed of myself, and I feel that this a huge betrayal of the nation. I took the money and went with them and demonstrated with them and I was not proud of myself. I support the Egyptian people, and god willing the Egyptian people will be victorious.

From Zaid Saleh on Twitter: from Tahrir sq..the confession of some who have been arrested from the horse & camel riders, they are hired through KAMAL ALJABRI-from the parliment from Alsaman area. Please pass.
