Rally on the 5th Anniversary of the Rabaa Massacre by the Egypt Military


Report (with Photos and Videos) from a Rally in Vienna on 14 August 2018, Austrian Section of the RCIT, www.rkob.net and www.thecommunists.net




Dozens of Egyptian migrants assembled in the centre of Vienna to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the Rabaa Massacre by the Egypt Military. On 14 August 2013 the military slaughtered up to 2.600 demonstrators on a single day! The “crime” of these people was to protest against the military coup which General Sisi had carried out a few weeks earlier on 3 July!


The organizers of the Egyptian community invited the Austrian section of the RCIT to attend and speak at the rally. We participated with a delegation, and our comrade Michael Pröbsting, International Secretary of the RCIT, addressed those gathered. He emphasized the solidarity of the RCIT with the resistance of the Egypt people against the military dictatorship. He also condemned the support of US and European imperialism for General Sisi.
