My Egypt Revolution’s posts: February 4


‎”Day of Departure”. Time for Mubarak to go. I need to move from the edge of town, where I found refuge last night with two lovely friends, to a hotel downtown. I’ll wait for the noon prayers, the most important in the Muslim week, hoping to find less obstacles on my way.

    • Témoris Grecko I made it safely to the hotel. People were busy with prayers, so I only have to let them search my luggage once and give explanations thrice. People are flowing into Tahrir square to demand Mubarak’s departure

    • Maxime Bourgeois Are you simply telling them that you are a journaliste?

      04 February at 14:17 · 
    • Témoris Grecko Never. No way. I’d be beaten up and locked up now

Mubarak’s propaganda machine is running. A lot of people in #Egypt are tired and scared. Many of them want to believe empty promises

 

 

State-owned Nile TV in #Egypt is highlighting Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi calling Mubarak “the wisest of men”

 

Reaching Tahrir square was impossible. The vigilante groups questioned us at least twice in every block. As foreigners in general are accused of plotting against Egypt, we were harassed. We wasted hours and the curfew started at 5pm. Coming back was another odyssey. They called us from Amnesty International because two of her colleagues remain disappeared

    • Témoris Grecko Two French journalists who were we us were very worried because a member of their team, a 25yo French journalist, was detained by secret police. They called her, an officer answered the phone and told them to come because she was wounded. Her Egyptian boyfriend went. No news. They called again and the same officer told them to come because now both of them were wounded. Minutes ago, they were finally released, unharmed.

    • Hurrem Sonmez Temoris how is the reaction about Ahmet Sefik’s speech, because I think its like decleration of Mubarek will not go? And what do you think about situation of Muslim Brothers?

    • Sean Cooke It’s good that you still have internet access there, Im guessing a few of your peers have satellite internet or something? To hear the latest on-the-ground updates from a you is pretty fuckin awesome excuse my French, and judging by your stints in DRC and Iran I know you’ll be just fine. But still, take care and keep the updates flowing. Any pics?

    • Sonal Panse Curious thing. I woke up this morning and knew you were in Egypt, and so you are. Take care, stay safe. You know anything about the looting in the National Museum?

    • Témoris Grecko

      Internet is back, they realised that shutting it down had no other effect apart from further undermining the economy. Pics are really difficult to take –a camera out in the streets is like shouting “get me! get me!”. But I’m posting a few,…See more

    • Témoris Grecko Hurrem, we’ll see in the future, but both Mubarak and many hypocritical Westerners are using them as scaremongers to justify the dictatorship: better him than islamism…

      Juani, Gracia y María, no se preocupen, gracias y besos!
