I have read from the newspapers, watch the new on tv, read from the other blogs and also find out more information from Al-Jazeera about what's happening in Egypt now. While most Malaysian bloggers wrote about the appeal and the hope that all Malaysians are going to be safe during this dangerous time, I want to share something that some of us might not realize why they have no other means of expressing their anger and frustration. I'm also concern about the safety of those who are residing in Egypt now and I pray that they'll be okay.
When there are high unemployment, soaring food price and politic repression, will you do something about it? If there's one person who control everything in the country for so.....long and somehow don't really try to help his people to have a comfortable life, will you be angry? Now, let's see the deadly demonstrations in photos:
As for me, I won't judge their actions now if we don't understand the causes to their actions. From what I've read (Al-Jazeera is a more trustful news source compared to C**), I reckon they have no other choice but to do the series of demonstrations to end the autocratic government under the president Hosni Mubarak. I suggest if you also want to know more, read THIS and THIS before you decide your stand on this issue.
EU labeled their actions as "extremism" but when they can only understand what is happening if they are in these people's shoes. This is what Italian foreign minister said:
"I am sure Egyptians will be in a position to choose democracy and civil rights, not extremism, not radicalism," (Franco Frattini) (Source: HERE)
Now, I would like to know what's your opinion or your stand about this issue? What do you reckon the best way for them to voice out their anger and frustrations?
