August 14, 2019 marks the 6th anniversary of the largest, most horrific mass killings of protesters in the world in decades: #Egypt ‘s Rabaa massacre. Never forget the 1000+ protesters murdered. Demand justice.
#OnThisDay 6 years ago, Egyptian security forces killed hundreds of supporters of Egypt's first democratically elected president Mohamed Morsi. It was one of the deadliest days for demonstrations in Egypt's modern history known as the 'Rabaa massacre'
In his world of doublespeak, Egypt's Pres Sisi says he's fighting "terrorism" but then oversees the murder of 817+ protesters in Rabaa Square six years ago and since then the detention (and often torture) of 60,000.
In all my years of reporting, I haven't witnessed so much concentrated death than the clearing of Rabaa when over 900 ppl were slaughtered in a single day. I personally counted over 250 bodies & 1 truck of human sludge. Yet no one's been held accountable.
Why does Egypt's Pres Sisi try to whitewash the Rabaa Square massacre of 817+ protesters? Because he oversaw the slaughter. No wonder he's sweating profusely on . This video shows how this bloodbath unfolded.
Egypt Pres Sisi's profuse sweating shows his discomfort with his lies on 60 Minutes such as that he has no political prisoners (actually: 60,000) or the Rabaa Sq massacre was of "thousands" of armed men (only dozen weapons found among 817+ people murdered)
Five years ago under Gen Sisi's direction, Egypt killed 817+ protesters in Rabaa Square--a crime against humanity. Sisi is now president. No perpetrator has been prosecuted or even questioned. Only surviving protesters have been prosecuted.
Sisi not concerned about killing 817+ at Rabaa Sq because loss of life elsewhere was larger.
