Something big just happened in Egypt right now. Something very big. [View all]

Something big just happened in Egypt right now. Something very big. This is the second wave of the Egyptian revolution.

There are many tens of thousands in the streets (who can count such numbers?) all over Egypt.

The Presidential Guard has fled. The CSF (Central Security Forces) has deserted its posts around the palace. Sh*t is going down in Egypt. And don't even bother with Al-Jazeera. It fast lost its last shreds of credibility in the Middle East. Only RT is reporting this honestly.

Tents are going up in front of the people's palace right now.



Morsi flees as angry crowd storms palace in Cairo, battles riot police





This article is from before that:


Egypt protest turns violent
5 Dec 2012

...

n a brief outburst, police fired tear gas to stop protesters approaching the palace in the capital's Heliopolis district. Morsi was in the palace conducting business as usual while the protesters gathered outside. But he left for home through a back door when the crowds "grew bigger," according to a presidential official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media.

The violence erupted when protesters pushed aside a barricade topped with barbed wire several hundred yards from the palace walls. Police fired tear gas, and then retreated. With that barricade removed, protesters moved closer to the palace's walls, with police apparently choosing not to try and push the crowds back.

Protesters also commandeered a police van, climbing atop the armoured vehicle to wave Egypt's red, white and black flag.

In the coastal city of Alexandria, some 10,000 opponents of Morsi gathered in the centre of the country's second largest metropolis. They chanted slogans against the leader and his Islamic fundamentalist group, the Muslim Brotherhood.

A thing of beauty. And it's the same young Egyptian Socialists at the forefront again.

Edit: If you don't want to believe me about AJE, neoliberal and complicit to its bones, maybe you'll believe this guy:

سلطان سعود القاسمي ‏@SultanAlQassemi

Is there anyone out there who thinks Al Jazeera has one iota of credibility when it comes to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood, one iota?!
