walk like an Egyptian..

Meanwhile, the Aquino government, in the absence of a categorical condemnation of the human rights violations and military violence, seems to be condoning Mubarak’s dictatorship and tyranny by insinuating that protesters and demonstrators are the cause of the unrest. The Department of Foreign Affairs even went so far as to forbid Filipino nationals in Egypt from joining legitimate protest actions. This, ironically, from a President who lays claim to “people power” as if it were his birthright. ###
