Second anniversary of the Friday of Rage sees more fighting on the streets of Egypt


By Luiz Sanchez

On 28 January 2011, hundreds upon thousands of people took to the streets, unified by a single, determined purpose; to claim their right to choose their destiny. As the masses claimed the streets of Egypt calling for bread, freedom and social justice, the government responded in kind with violence, oppression and impunity.

Two years on and the violence remains a core issue in Egypt. This time however, a deep division in political perspectives and a lack of unified core demands has resulted in a weakened presence on the ground. Protesters still clash with police around key installations in Cairo, while police respond to manifestations with tear gas and ammunition; Egyptians are still subject to arbitrary detention and military trials; and the need for bread, freedom and social justice is higher than ever.

The players may have changed, but the game remains the same.
