Egyptian lesson for global revolutionaries

POTENTIAL revolutionaries across the world should watch carefully what is happening in Egypt at the moment.

This is what happens if you get anywhere near threatening the grip on power of the global capitalist system.

First of all they ignore you, then they mock you, spy on you, infiltrate you, kettle you, prosecute you, intimidate you, threaten you, lie about you, beat you up.

If all that fails, they may trick you into thinking you have won - as they seem to have done in Egypt earlier this year.

When you see through it all and refuse to lie down, they will start shooting you (as they do in this video).  

And still you have to keep fighting, like the heroes of Cairo, because otherwise you are condemning your children, their children and their children afterwards to lives of slavery.
