You don't have to understand Arabic to get the meaning of the video; just look at the people. Basically, they're saying they love Egypt and just want freedom and social justice.

 Quoting: indiandave


Yep. It's been my second home for more than five years. I love it, so know I'm answering your question with that bias.

I believe people expected more and they expected better would come of the revolution.

They wanted bread. Meaning, they want no more hunger and there is certainly hunger and malnutrition to be found. The price of food has skyrocketed: in 2009 I was buying a kilo of tomatoes for 2.5 LE; when I left in April they cost 7 LE. Salaries are stagnant, partially to the economic disaster as tourism is gone and has not come back, no matter what the government says. Well, that and employers have it in their heads that 400 LE/month "is a good salary." The only upside to bread is that junk/fast food is tremendously expensive (a McDonald's meal is 25 LE and up), so purchasing power goes toward the more nutritious foods, even if it fuul (beans). The government still operates bread bakeries, although wheat prices have caused them to change the recipe and switch corn for wheat. The government also still produces and sells (at next to nothing prices) commodities in grocery stores and government stores, and distributes cheap filler foods (rice, tea, sugar, pasta) to every single household in Egypt. Egyptians have a tremendous sense of pride, so standing in a government hand-out line instead of shopping in the souk (markets) is gut busting.

They wanted freedom. It almost goes without saying that Egyptians freedoms have been restricted in almost every area, at at least the same level if not more than when Baba Mu & Crew were in charge.

They wanted social justice. Egypt has an unspoken but clearly defined class system and nobody likes it. Well, except the people at the top who make the rules to keep everyone else out. Wanna see an opera? Better have shoes that cover your entire foot. Feel like hanging out at a cafe and smoking some sheesha/hooka? Only if you can afford the minimum charge. Is your husband a driver? Well then, you probably do domestic work, so you can pay the fees the private teachers demand so your child/ren can get an education because the better, private schools are set up to keep people without money ... out.

People in general can see what they're getting isn't what they wanted. They want a change. This is People vs. Muslim Brotherhood/hard line Islamists.

The beards will be targets. Mark my words.

Yep, I was here when this whole mess broke out. I can't help but laugh now at those (90%) like Snark on this site who did nothing but crow about the Tahrir debacle. It was clear at least to a few of us exactly how it was going to work out since the MB was the only group clearly organized to win an election. It now is begining to appear that this could well have been a case of "giving them enough rope to hang themselves" and they stepped right into it. The problem I have with this whole thing is probably millions h ave sustained some form of disasterous circumstances while the point was being made.
