Egypt.com – Court Acquits 16 Brotherhood Protesters – 2 December 2013


Boulaq Aboel Ela Misdemeanor Court acquitted, Sunday, 16 defendants belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood from charges of assembling, thuggery, and disrupting public transport on the anniversary of the 6 October War victory.

The defense requested the acquittal of defendants due to the vagueness of the charges. The court of first instance had sentenced the defendants for 3 years in prison.

It looks as if protesters in Ukraine can topple the government, and it’s not clear whether the president has the stomach or the intellect to control the situation there, Mark Almond, an Oxford University historian, told RT.

Almond believes that these protests are part of Ukraine’s economic difficulties. But association with Europe “would stimulate an economic downturn and more mass migration, rather than reform process, which would improve life,” he believes.

RT: It does look like protesters would like to topple the government. Do you think it is likely to happen?

osborneobrfinal…and the Telegraph can no longer be taken seriously

It has been declared many times that Bourse-driven capitalism is something of an illusion that can only be maintained by trust and confidence. So when trust turns to distrust and confidence becomes discernment of a confidence trick, there really isn’t much hope of the system surviving – at least, not without a lot of unpleasantness.
