Egyptians want basic human rights! SCAF needs to step down immediately. SCAF is an army that has tortured, intimidated and imprisoned civilians and has put 15000 people on military trial since Mubarak stepped down. The international governments that are complicit and who have replenished the stocks of tear gas and bullets that are being shot at people need to condemn the police and the army’s brutality.

Former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, called upon the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (SCAF) and the Egyptian government to step down, citing their corrosion or failure to protect citizens.
“SCAF & Government unable to protect civilians or in cahoots with thugs. Egypt going down the drain.” ElBaradei said.
