Arab Spring 2.0? — “Sisi Must Leave” Mass Protest Rocks Egypt’s Streets Overnight
By Tyler Durden
Overnight mass protests popped up in the streets of Cairo involving hundreds, possibly thousands, who took over a central square of the capital to demonstrate against strongman Egyptian ruler Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
Like the prior so-called ‘Arab Spring’ protests which rocked Egyptian streets starting in 2010 through 2011, which began the chain of tumultuous events which ended in Sisi’s taking power via coup d’état toppling the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi, Friday night’s spontaneous demonstrations, which also hit the port cities of Alexandria and Suez, were the result of coordinated online organizing.
