Arab League Marks International Day o...
Cairo, Egypt
By Video Cairo Sat
29 Nov 2012

The Arab League marked the annual anniversary of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People on Thursday, November 29.

A number of foreign envoys participated in the event.

Arab League Chief Nabil al-Araby said that it's time for the Palestinians to gain their freedom and independence to live like other peoples freely in their independent homeland.

He called on the international community to work to achieve this goal.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Arab League Chief Nabil al-Araby:
“The world has to realize that the Palestinian cause is the real key for implementing peace and security in the region, not in the region only, but all over the world. And the continued failure of the international community in finding an equitable and comprehensive solution for this decades-long conflict leads to continued instability in this region.”

The Arab League stressed the need for intensive efforts by the international community for the realization of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.

For his part, Richard Falk, the UN special Rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories warned that without implementation of the full agreement between Israel and Palestinians, ceasefire will evaporate in a cloud of smoke.

SOUNDBITE 2 (English) - Richard Falk, the UN special Reporter on human rights in the Palestinian territories:
“It is a tense historical moment of heavy consequences for the Palestinian people and for the peoples and governments of the region. I along with many others throughout the world share Nelson Mandela's view that the denial of Palestinian rights remains the greatest moral issue of our time"

The United Nations International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is observed on November 29 each year to give the widest support and publicity to Palestinian cause. Solidarity Day provides an opportunity for the international community to focus its attention on the fact that the Palestinian cause is still unresolved.

Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas has chosen this day to formally ask the United Nations General Assembly to recognize Palestine as a “non-member state.”

08 Nov 2012

Hundreds of Egyptian doctors marched on Thursday, November 8, from Omar Makram Mosque in Tahrir Square to the Egyptian State TV Building (Maspero), holding a symbolic funeral for the Ministry of Health as part of their ongoing strike calling for healthcare reforms.
On the 39th day of their strike the protesting doctors wore black clothes, holding in their hands white coats to represent coffins.
They shouted slogans and raised banners demanding social justice and better hospital security.
Their major demands include an increase of healthcare share in the general budget to 15%, better health services, increased security at health facilities and higher pay.
SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Mohamed Abdel-Sattar, a striking doctor:
“We decided today to hold a symbolic march entitled ‘the funeral of Egyptian healthcare’ due to the Health Ministry’s disregard of the strike’s three legitimate demands: to increase the healthcare budget, to increase security at hospitals and to implement the cadre of doctors within three years, not now. We want to live a decent life like everyone.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Amr Shura, media coordinator of the doctors’ strike committee:
“Today is the 39th day of the doctors’ strike. We tried everything. We held marches, protests, marches, etc. We’re not required to provide solutions but we did. However, there was no response. Today, we tell the health minister that he’s failed.”

A number of political forces voiced support for the mock funeral procession of the striking doctors, protesting against alleged deteriorating healthcare and negligent government.
The doctors threatened to escalate the situation if their demands are not met.
The April 6 Youth Movement, Revolutionary Socialists, National Front for Justice and Democracy and Youth for Freedom and Justice are among the forces taking part in the march.
The doctors’ partial strike started on October 1 after being approved on September 21 at a Doctors Syndicate emergency general assembly meeting.

Dérives

31 Oct 2012

Ensglish follows

Réalisé de façon indépendante sans aucune contribution financière, le film Dérives est le résultat de plus de trente heures d'entretiens réalisés avec des citoyennes et des citoyens témoins et victimes d'abus policiers.

Le film est partagé gratuitement depuis le 13 février dernier sur Internet à partir du site web du collectif (www.99media.org), avec l'objectif de nourrir le débat public sur la question de l'exercice de la répression et ses conséquences sociales. Une répression qui fut banalisée - voire encouragée - à la fois par les sphères politiques et médiatiques québécoises.

En un mois, le total des visionnements pour Dérives a atteint la somme de 50 000. Le film a également été diffusé plusieurs fois devant public et sera projeté le samedi 16 mars 2013 dans le cadre du festival Hors Cadre. Il s’agit d’un succès qui dépasse toute espérance pour un film qui n'a fait l'objet d'aucune mention par les médias traditionnels et qui prouve que les créateurs des médias émergents pourront désormais s'affranchir de la nécessité d'une attention médiatique.

--------English--------

Produced independently without any financial aid, Dérives is the result of more than thirty hours of interview with citizen witnesses, and victims, of police brutality.

The film has been available online for free since February 13th on the collective's website (www.99media.org), with the goal of contributing to the public debate on the issue of repression and its social consequences... repression that has been banalised, even encouraged, by Quebec's political and media spheres.

A month after its release, Dérives has been seen more than 50 000 times. The film has also been screened publicly a number of times and will be featured on Saturday, March 16th 2013 at the Hors Cadre festival. This is an unprecedented success for a Quebec documentary without any traditional media mention, proving the emerging media scene can now overcome the need of mainstream media attention.

Egyptians Address Morsi during Eid - ...
Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
27 Oct 2012

During the first Sacrifice Feast (Eid al-Adha) under the rule of President Mohamed Morsi, Egyptians send their president messages with various demands and issues that they wished would have been settled by the Eid.

The lack of security was the number one demand of Egyptians and the first wish they wanted Morsi to hear on this holy Muslim occasion.

Egyptians also address their new President to focus on the youth and work on providing them with housing and job opportunities, as unemployment in the country has exceeded 12%.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – Beesa Talaat, Egyptian woman:
“Our demand from President Morsi is security, safety, stability and to live in a clean country, those are mainly the things that he already promised us. Adding to that, we want him to provide us with proper means of public transportation, and also we want the police to return back to normal.” SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – Ahmed Abdel-Aaty, Egyptian young man:
“One of the main problems we face is traffic, those few days before Eid; the traffic was unbearable, and one of the main problems also is cleanliness, which they still didn’t find solutions for, so hopefully step by step; we will make some achievement if people would cooperate with the government.”

A clean environment is also among the top demands of Egyptians.

President Morsi launched a two-day “Clean Homeland” campaign late July, during which workers, bulldozers, machines and officials could be seen everywhere nationwide. However, piles of garbage gradually returned to fill Egyptian streets.

Some Egyptians also demand retrial of those who killed peaceful protestors during the January 25 Revolution last year, complaining that most of the perpetrators have been acquitted.

SOUNDBITE 3 (Arabic) – Ahmed Mansour, Egyptian man, Engineer at General Motors:
“I was hoping to see more achievements from President Mosri, to feel that he came after a real successful revolution and that he came to achieve the goals that were set by that revolution, for me this is the main issue…I don’t feel that President Mosri achieved anything out of the revolution goals.”

President Morsi promised that his first 100-day plan would put an end to five main problems in Egypt: lack of security, garbage in the streets, traffic jams and shortages of bread and fuel. However, monitoring activists say that Morsi achieved only 9.37% of the promises of his first 100 days.

In a previous speech, Morsi gave greater indication of the progress he made in the five major issues than what a lot of Egyptians actually feel.

Calmness around Lebanon Cabinet after...
Beirut, Lebanon
By Video Cairo Sat
21 Oct 2012

Calmness prevailed around the Lebanese Cabinet headquarters on Sunday, October 21, after angry protestors attempted to break into the building demanding government resignation.

Security men dispersed the protestors using teargas shots.

The public rage was a reaction to the assassination of intelligence chief Wissam al-Hassan through a car bomb explosion, which killed seven others and injured over a hundred.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) – A protesting man:
“There wasn’t a decision made to break into the Cabinet. On the contrary, the decision was to protect the Cabinet and its privacy. But we have a message for the Prime Minister Najib Mikati telling him that we do not want him as prime minister and that he protected the murderers and did not do anything to serve this country or to protect its people.”

SOUNDBITE 2 (Arabic) – A protesting woman:
“We’re participating in this sit-in because we want to oust the government of Hezbollah and Bashar al-Assad. We need to know what we are heading to in the future. We don’t feel secure because of Hezbollah’s weapons, which have become numerous enough to cause us to fear for our lives.”

The Cabinet building was surrounded by tight security cordon and barded wires.

Several were injured in the clashes but calmness eventually returned to the cabinet area, although protestors remained until the evening.

Security men and protestors were separated by security barriers in an atmosphere of cautious calmness.

Cairo, Egypt
By U.S. Editor
26 Sep 2012

The Spanish Embassy in Cairo called on the Egyptian authorities for tight security after Spanish political satire Magazine El Jueves showed in its latest edition on Wednesday, September 26, a caricature deemed insulting to Muslims.

The caricature shows several long-bearded Muslims in a police lineup under the title "But...does anyone know what Mohammad looks like?"

El Jueves' controversial caricature comes following the French Charlie Hebdo Magazine that also published anti-Islam cartoons, causing French embassies and institutions in 20 countries to temporarily close as a precaution against potential backlash.

Mobs of protesters have recently attacked American embassies in some Muslim countries including Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Pakistan.

Egypt’s army started on Thursday, August 9, sending heavy equipment on large trucks to Rafah, North Sinai, to start sealing off the smuggling tunnels between Egypt’s Rafah and the besieged Gaza Strip.

The move comes in reaction to the recent bloody attacks by gunmen that killed 16 army soldiers and injured at least seven.

The trucks were loaded with armored vehicles, rock drillers, tractors, cranes and other heavy equipment to be used for sealing off the smuggling tunnels.

Security sources at Rafah Border Crossing said that the military forces would continue sealing off those tunnels in the coming few days, stressing that they posed a constant threat to Egypt’s national security.

Security officials also said that there were about 1,200 smuggling tunnels between Egypt and Gaza Strip, and the giant equipment that were brought in would be used for sealing them off.

STORYLINE:
At least one was killed and several people were injured on Thursday, August 2, at Nile City Towers in Cairo after clashes erupted between security men and alleged thugs.
The so-called thugs attacked the Fairmont Hotel at the Nile City Towers with Molotov cocktails. One of them was shot dead by a police officer according to Egyptian state-run newspapers.
Some other reports say the number of people killed in the clashes was two.
Several burnt, damaged and overturned vehicles could be seen outside the hotel.
Eyewitnesses said the clashes erupted when a man entered Fairmont Hotel and demanded money, threatening people with a knife until the police officer confronted him and shot him dead.
Egypt’s Ministry of Interior stated that the man who was killed has a criminal record and was detained for security reasons.
He and his fellows were thugs who received monthly money from the hotel for protection and when the hotel management refused the thugs started rioting, according to the Ministry’s report.
The police arrested 15 men charged of being involved in the clashes and the prosecution is currently interrogating eight of them.
