Thousands March in Naser City to be R...
Naser City, Egypt
By a.fatah85
24 Mar 2012

Cairo, Egypt | March 24th, 2012

As Parliamentarians in Egypt appoint a 100-member panel that will draft the country's new constitution, demonstrations rallied for their voice and rights to be fairly represented. There is growing concern over the polarization between liberals and Islamists in the constitution process.

00:00 – 00:12
Chanting :
Our young people made a revolution as a volcano, and the military aligned with the Brotherhood.

00:47 -01:00
Chanting:
Free rebels we are going on, they want to steel our revolution - over our dead body.

01:10 -01:21
Chanting :
The constitution is for Egyptians not for Muslim Brotherhood or Salafi.

02:14- 02:59
Niveen Mousaad/Demonstrator
I’m Niveen Mousaad, an independent woman, I wish to see my country better. On January 28, 2011 we think that we are going to have good country, country for my daughter, but everything is worthless because of the Military Council. Its the authority which is destroying us now. They are the reason for everything that is happening now in this country. Muslim Brotherhood should not write the constitution even if they are the majority. How can they write something that’s suppose to be monitoring them? All Egyptian people should be represented in the constitution. Me as a house wife and mother I would like to be represented. As an Egyptian and a woman.

03:09 -03:18
Down military rule.

05:00 – 005:23
We have been here for 3 hours. We want a constitution. They totally refused article 28, why did they just refuse it?! What do they exactly demand? We just don’t get what they want. Usually the Muslim Brotherhood or their Chairman reveals their opinion. We are not expecting anything more from them except them just saying “Thank You”.

05:29- 06:30
Hussein Abd-Elmoaty/Demonstrator
Hussein Abd-Elmoaty. I do not agree to participate in the farce of the Constitution. We must prevent the farce as best we can, especialy for 50% and 50%. People do not notice that we are on the verge of disaster. They are trying to go back the old constitution of 1970. People do not want to speak about that. They would rather speak about the fuel crisis. Today, protesters came from Abbasiya, Al-Nour Mosque. The number will grow.

07:24
The sign says: “down the head of muslim brotherhood”

06:27 – 08:26
There is a big problem in Egypt. It was there before and is still here.

Interview with Hoda Shahed on NGO Trial
Cairo, Egypt
By a.fatah85
04 Mar 2012

March 3, 2012 - Cairo
An interview with an NGO worker, Hoda Shahed, at the International Republican Institute. Hoda Shahed explains her views of the on-going trial and the departure of the accused foreigners.

Transcription:
0:00 - 0:20 My name is Hoda Shahed, I’m a researcher in political science. My colleagues in the human rights field and defenders of freedom and I were all so confused. We did not understand what was going on.
0:21 - 0:47 At the time we were thinking that it would be solved quickly. We then found out that the case was going on. We were very surprised that after the first session, the judges stepped down from the case and imposed a travel ban on the accused. Why did they do that?
0:48 - 1:02 Why can the foreigners travel after paying two million EGP each?
1:03 - 1:18 The thing my colleagues and I want to know is: If you pay two million as bail. What is the damage to the society?
1:19 - 1:25 And if they really did so much damage for this society that they deserved to pay 2 million each, why did they let them travel?
1:26 - 2:09 I am working at the International Republican Institute and I am in touch with my colleagues. We are Egyptian people working there with the foreigners. The institutions said: we will support you and give you legal aid. But from what I saw after they go to the prosecution and the trial, the employee thought there was someone who would defend them. Finally, all the foreigners who were not Egyptian were allowed to travel. We don’t know about the Egyptians yet.
2:10 - 2:30 I am so disappointed and I feel insulted that we humiliated ourselves with a case that is not more than a misdemeanor, something you can pay a fine for, but they raised it to a felony.
2:31 - 2:39 Now that we took money from them, the charge will be changed to a misdemeanor. I feel we are no better than beggars for taking this money.
2:40 - 3:01 Don’t tell me about the independence of the judiciary. I’ve studied and worked in this field and I did a project before with an NGO on the same topic. I also wrote a book on this to support the independence of the judicial system.
3:02 - 3:33 I was so surprised when I saw the Judges at the press conference, speaking to the people about the case and the progress on it because when we would invite them to come to our seminars, they would always tell us: “We cannot talk to the media, or it could affect the case and our objectivity.” So why are they interested in the public opinion about the case now and show up and talk at a press conference?

Interview with syrian film maker Hava...
Cairo, Egypt

16 Feb 2012

Cairo, February 17,2012

00:00 -00:10 I’m Haval Kasso, Syrian film maker, from Ruckn Al-Din, Damascus.

00:11-00:19 A long time ago Rukn al-Din was for Kurds only in Damascus, after that it became mixed.

00:20- 00:30 This mix came from all cities and villages.

00:35- 00:44 We all are from the Kurds of Syria, who came from the north, these are the Kurds in Al-Hassaka, Halab.

01:21-01:36 From our neighborhoods many get hurt, martyrs. Rukn al-Din was one of the places that started the revolution.

01:37- 02:01 Maybe it was from moves by Kurds, not because there are Kurds or Syrians because all Syrian people, all sects and nationalities, are against oppression and tyranny .

02:10- 02:13 The revolution united people more.

03:12- 03:16 The Revolution called for freedom and dignity.

03: 20 – 03: 33 All Syrian people with the revolution, there are “Alawies” with the revolution, Christians, some of them are martyrs , some is activists, there are Kurds, Shiites and Sunnis .

03:34 -03:45 All people need revolution, the people want freedom, dignity and justice. They are against the regime which includes Shiites and Sunnis.

03:55 - 04:10 The situation now in Egypt, after revolution, gives us more space to express our revolution.
04:11 -04:31 The Egyptian people are similar to the Syrian people, and their heart is with us, there is sympathy and interaction from the Egyptian people, standing by our side.

04:32 -04:44 Activities that we can do now, because there is a space to express ourselves without ridiculous comments to hear, or people against us.

04:45 - 05:14 Bashar and his father never were Israel's enemy, for 40 years Israel captured the Golan Heights and he has not fired a single bullet. And three times Israeli Air Force was able to fly in the Syrian sky, we lost our dignity every time he was saying “Syria reserves the right to respond”!!

05:44 -06 :07 Before the revolution last March, I tried to go to Syria as a filmmaker; I wanted to document what’s happening there, but I could not. So I started to get to know the Syrian community in Egypt, then demonstrated in front of the Embassy.

06:08 We started to think how we can support the revolution from outside, and I started to make some short videos, organize a demonstration every two or three days---- we take our strength from the Syrian street.
