Mahalla announces autonomy

Sara Abou Bakr / December 7, 2012

“We no longer belong to the Ikhwani state”




Mahalla. AFP/File Photo

Protesters in Mahalla, the largest industrial city in Egypt, threw out the head of their city council, Friday night, and announced their autonomy from the “Muslim brotherhood” state.

“We no longer belong to the Ikhwani state,” they announced from the city council.

Mahlla is known for its clashes with the police in 2008 which some analysts consider to be the spark of the January 25 2011 revolution.

69. I know. I think Morsi realizes he overplayed his hand.

71. I'm not sure what to think, but it doesn't feel good for me either.

He doesn't seem to want to budge, other than merely postponing the referendum until Wednesday? The MB hardliners seem to want no compromise at all and after all the violence, I can't imagine a few days delay making any difference to opposition supporters. It's really sad, they fought so hard for change.
