3am on Saturday morning Tahrir Square was cleared up by the Egyptian Army, again.
They shot at the crowd and killed at least two, wounding 70. The apparent reason for this, 15 officers left their ranks and joined demonstrators in open defiance of their superiors. “If they want to execute us for desertion, they have to come and do it here, in front of the whole World,” said one of the officers addressing demonstrators in Tahrir. A crowd of hundreds had joined hands, creating a human wall to protect the officers from the Army’s crackdown. Others thought there was something more than that, and if protesters did not protect the officers, people would not have died.
Amidst all this, a protester tells us his truth about those heated moments.
