Statement issued by the Egyptian Communist Party, February 2, 2011
The hour of truth is near and the decisive moment has arrived when the Egyptian people pronounce their final word asserting the need to bring down Mubarak and change his regime. It seems that the life of the regime of tyranny (..) especially that its American masters have taken their hands off in the wake of the continuing revolution of the people and its escalation everywhere in Egypt.Yep, this is a "democratic" revolution folks. Nothing to see here. Move along.
The millions of people who have come out today to demand the departure of Mubarak will ensure the defeat of all the conspiracies of the dictator and his gang who aim to thwart the revolution and to circumvent it.
The agreement to form a committee that enjoys the confidence of the people and the demonstrators is a critical issue for achieving the political, economic and social demands of the revolution. And we stress the basic demands approved by the patriotic forces represented in the people’s parliament:
1 – The removal of Mubarak and the formation of a presidential council for a transitional period of specified duration.
2 – The formation of a coalition government that assumes the management of the country during the transitional period.
3 - To call for the formation of an elected constituent assembly to draft a new constitution for the country, based on the principle of the sovereignty of the nation and ensuring the devolution of power within the framework of a just democratic civil state.
4 - To prosecute those responsible for hundreds killed and injured among the martyrs of the Revolution and victims of security oppression, as well as prosecuting those responsible for plundering the wealth of the Egyptian people.
Long live the revolution of the Egyptian people
