Mubarak: I’m dissolving Egypt’s government, I’m not going anywhere”

28Jan11

Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak just appeared on television, in what was apparently a pre-recorded message. At the end of his speech, he said he has asked the current government (meaning, basically, his cabinet) to resign, and says he will form a new one tomorrow. With him remaining in power as president.

People wanted to overthrow the regime

We are the masses in the sit in in Tahrir Square, who ignited the spark of the uprising against injustice and tyranny, where raised by the will of the people, the people who suffered 30 years of oppression, injustice and poverty under the rule of Mubarak, and his cronies in the National Party .

Egyptians have proven today that they are capable of extricating their freedom and destroying tyranny

The people’s demands were vocalized today in their chants:

1. Mubarak’s immediate stepping down from power.
2. The resignation of the cabinet.
3. the dissolution of the fraudulent parliament
4. The formation of a national government.

We will continue to sit-in until our demands are met, and we call upon the masses all over Egypt and the trade unions, professional syndicates, political parties, and institutions to rise up and extricate these demands.

let us strike and sit-in and protest everywhere, untill we topple the regime

UPDATE: The New York Times has updated their lead story with coverage of Mubarak’s speech.
