Down, Down with Sisi! Freedom, Freedom for Egypt!
Report from a Rally in Austria in Solidarity with the Resistance in Egypt
By Nina Gunić, Revolutionary Communist Organization for Liberation (RKOB, Austrian Section of the RCIT), 25.8.2013, www.rkob.net
The solidarity movement in Austria with the Resistance against the military regime of General Sisi continues. After the demonstration on 18th August (report with photos and videos here), another rally took place on 23rd August in Vienna. The Revolutionary Communist Organization for Liberation (RKOB) again played an active role in the rally.
Several hundred people – mostly Arab and Turkish migrants – expressed their militant opposition against the dictatorship. A number of speakers from the Egypt community declared their solidarity with their brothers and sisters in Egypt.
Michael Pröbsting, International Secretary of the RCIT (the RKOB is the Austrian Section of the RCIT), emphasized in his speeches the international importance of solidarity protests not only with the resistance in Syria, Palestine, Brazil and many other countries. He stated that the military regime is a dictatorship financed by the USA. He called for power to be taken in the hand of the toilers, the working people. He called to prepare for a longer perspective of underground work against the dictatorship and the preparation of a general strike.
The RKOB demonstrated again that it stands for international solidarity in words and deeds!
