The Egyptian Revolutionary Council’s (ERC) spokesperson’s comments on the memorial of the massacre of ‘Rabaa’ that took place on August 14th, 2013.
August 14th, 2014
With the memorial of the massacres of Rabaa and Elnahda on August 14t, 2013, a memorial that renews the memory of pain for the loss of women, children and men who were killed intentionally with premeditation in the hands of treachery and betrayal.
On this day, our people raise the flags of sorrow for the victims of the massacres of Rabaa and Elnahda, and subsequent barbaric crimes of the fascist regime, which has claimed the lives of thousands of martyrs and left behind thousands of wounded, and humiliated daily its detainees. The banners of sadness will not distract us from the banners of dignity to ensure the continuation of the struggle of our people to regain their revolution.
We call upon our fellow members of the Egyptian Army and the honorable individuals of the Egyptian police to refrain from firing on their brothers and sisters demonstrating peacefully, who go out every day to express their desire to achieve the goals of the revolution of living in freedom and social justice and human dignity.
We appeal to the international community not to abandon the Egyptian people and to monitor the situation and to testify on the continuing terrorism and fascism of the coup, killing Egyptians, as done on August 14th, 2013, and as confirmed by the report issued yesterday by the Human Rights Watch.
Our battle with the fascist coup is not a power struggle, but is the battle of the Egyptian people as a whole. It is even a battle of all peoples of the world to preserve freedom and human rights, which have been violated since the Military Coup that took place on July 3rd, 2013.
The continuous demonstrations of our people for a whole year, despite the murder and oppression, is a proof that our people insist on bringing down the terrorist fascist coup, and return our beloved Egypt to the path of democracy and the establishment of a constitutional, civil state.
Long live the struggle of the Egyptian people. Long live the Egyptian revolution, the glory for the martyrs and the injured.
