από τον τύπο τους:

The activist filmmaker Aalam Wassef, who made subversive Web videos during the Mubarak era under the pseudonym Ahmad Sherif, released a bleakly comic music video that showed him sitting out Friday’s demonstrations at home, doing his laundry in front of a banner with a single word on it: “Resist.”

A small number of activists did take to the streets, however, displayingbanners in Sphinx Square with red lines through the faces of both General Sisi and Mr. Morsi.

As the Egyptian-British blogger Sarah Carr reported for Mada Masr, an English-language news site, the dozens of protesters in Sphinx Square “refer to their movement as ‘The Third Square.’ ”

In a leaflet distributed in the protest they describe themselves as “a group of Egyptians who protested on January 25 against the corruption of the Mubarak state … protested against [the former head of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein] Tantawi’s men, who gave the army a bad name during the transitional period, and protested against Morsi and religious fascism in order to call for early elections.”

The leaflet says that they are protesting today against the army playing a role in politics and against “the defense minister calling for an authorization to kill Egyptians on the pretext of fighting terrorism when fighting terrorism does not require a mandate because that is the duty of the Armed Forces.”
