Breaking: Military Refuses Help To Oust Mubarak, Comunique #3 Due Soon
The military has let down the Egyptian people, say some activists gathered in Liberation Square in Cairo, Egypt, on Friday, Feb. 11th, 2011. The Army said they will not intervene in the crisis of confidence in Egyptian President, Hosni Mubarak and force him to resign. However, the emergency law which prohibits more than 10 people from meeting together and unpopular curfews will be withdrawn some day, statement #2 from the army assures protesters. No specific date for removal of the unpopular law was made.

As two hundred thousand people jam into Tahrir square, the question looms, what next? Without the help of the military, bringing about regime change will be placed upon the backs of citizens. The question is, will the military intervene as citizens escalate their level of civil disobedience? National labor strikes are escalating in addition to the number of protesters.
As large banners pass through the crowd with the names and pictures of protesters who lost their lives the crowd chants, “This is why we will stay their life will not be lost in vain!”
After Mubarak refused to step down last night, a small group of about 100 activist pitched a camp at the presidential palace. Those 100 people have been joined by thousands of countrymen to bring the message to Hosni Mubarak in person: Time to go! If they attempt to force Mubarak to leave, will the army intervene?
Activists are not sure where to go from this point. “Anything can happen” said one man interviewed by Al Jazeera, a media outlet specializing in the Middle East.
Teams are converging upon the state TV station, perhaps in hopes of taking control of the vital communication asset, and inviting more countrymen to join them in their plight. It appears a small group may have broken through the barbed wire of the heavily guarded compound. Meanwhile, military chiefs are in continual session. Sources say the army will issue a third statement shortly.Continued on the next page
