The rallying cry during the anti-Morsi protests was:
"We sing to those who deserve to die;
Protesters could not have known that 7 years later, their prophecy would come through.
After the military overthrew the democratically elected government (on 3 July 2013), massacres began. Officially hundreds, but most likely thousands of people lost their lives. Tens of thousands were arrested, disappeared, tortured, raped, and exiled.
Members of the Muslim Brotherhood were liquidated (soon after the coup it became a banned organization), but also various left-wing organizations and individuals, as well as all those people who were against the corrupt right-wing military and its dictatorship.
Several of my friends had to leave the country. Others are still in prison. Or in hiding.
Former dictator, Western puppet and assassin Hosni Mubarak, is now a free man again. He is 91 years old.
67-year-old Mohamed Morsi is dead.
During the Morsi era, as well as during and after the 2013 coup, I was working in Egypt, making a documentary film for the Venezuelan television channel Telesur ("Egipto El Fin de Una Revolucion" "Egypt, End of the Revolution").
First, I investigated and wrote about the crimes committed during the reign of President Morsi in the city of Port Said: "Notes from a Besieged City".
And then, I was right there, in the middle of the battles, when the Egyptian military overthrew Morsi's government and began liquidating both the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Egyptian left wing. I described the events in my essays "Egypt End of Hope" and "Egypt in the Eye of the Storm". Many more essays from Egypt were then compiled in my book "Exposing Lies of The Empire".
Once, while filming after the coup, I found myself facing 5 talks, all pointing their cannons at me. How I survived, I am not sure. Others did not. By the time I finished collecting footage for my film, my body was covered by scars and bruises.
