  • 5 minutes of politics: CIVIL WHAT?


    So even if you have been living under a rock, you would know that Saturday is the day of Civil Disobedience… the question though, is do you know what Civil Dis-obediance mean ? well when in doubt always check out Wikipedia – and this is what they have to say…

    Civil disobedience is the active, professed refusal to obey certain laws, demands, and commands of a government, or of an occupying international power. Civil disobedience is commonly, though not always,[1][2] defined as being nonviolent resistance. It is one form of civil resistance. In one view (in India, known as ahimsa or satyagraha) it could be said that it iscompassion in the form of respectful disagreement.

    Well as i got my daily newspaper (yes shocker Fishie reads the news) i found that as the front cover of Al Akhbar, well since civil disobedience is suppose to be non violent, well i thought the cover says it all

    Well okay Civil Disobedience aside, do you know of this movement called kazboon  (liars), they have been going around towns, and cities and projecting what they say are lies by the armies and showing the truth and well with the built it up February 11th, more and more of their vedios have been portrayed, below is one to do with AUC

    Generally the Civil Disobedience day is suppose to last only one day, at least but thats for the people who are working and had jobs etc….. but speaking of AUC i just saw this on PRIME MAGAZINE Facebook, that AUC is rescheduling classes for Sunday and Monday, they don’t have classes on Sunday and Monday  … a lot of the professors are actually leading the movements with the students themselves.

    “Statement from AUC:
    For more than 90 years, the American University in Cairo (AUC) has fostered a culture of individual integrity and social responsibility among our students, faculty and staff. We believe we all must use our intellectual and creative capabilities to address the challenges that face Egypt and the world, so as to have a positive and sustainable impact on development, business, the environment and society everywhere. To that end, the University does not take any institutional position on issues of public moment, but rather permits free expression on campus and embraces open debate so that the individuals in our community may learn and grow as responsible citizens.
    Today in Egypt, there is spirited debate about the most desirable form of government, the best economic policies, the most effective transition plan and many other questions. In the spirit of civic engagement, and in order to permit our faculty and students to participate constructively in these debates, we will be rescheduling classes planned for Sunday, February 12 and Monday, February 13. We anticipate that faculty will sponsor a variety of activities, including forums, teach-ins, informal seminars and other opportunities for reflection on campus. The University will be open and non-academic programs will proceed as usual.”
