[…] For many of the revolutionaries who rose to prominence during the fall of Hosni Mubarak, the ousting of Morsi – seen as being just as autocratic as his predecessor – was another necessary step towards achieving the goals of the 2011 revolution. Yet they do not welcome the army’s role either, since the military represents simply another incarnation of the same authoritarianism.


«I don’t think there’s anything to celebrate,» said Mariam Kirollos, a Morsi critic, and a human rights activist who was heavily involved in the 2011 uprising. «Shifting from religious fascism to military fascism is not something worth celebrating. Unless they prove me wrong and make some reforms

For Wael Eskandar, an activist and journalist, Morsi’s downfall still represents the best way of achieving the goals of the 25 January revolution. Eskandar said that army rule was not the answer – but that it still offers a more likely route to eventual reform than Morsi. «With Morsi, there was no chance,» he said. «Morsi was an autocrat and he got us no way closer to democracy. At least with this change, there is more chance of building a democratic framework

Josef Sima.lieu1959Yet the army’s massacre last Monday of at least 51 Morsi supporters – and the indifferent, even jubilant reaction from some Morsi opponents – was a stark reminder that the military are no custodians of revolutionary values. «Our revolution started [in 2011] from a very humane point of view – we protested against police brutality,» said Kirollos. «Our demands were very clear: bread, freedom and social justice. But now I’m devastated by the level of inhumanity the majority has descended to.»

Some, like Eskandar, also fear that the downfall of Morsi – whom prosecutors said they were investigating on charges of espionage, inciting violence and ruining the economy – will help rehabilitate the same Mubarak loyalists and institutions that the 2011 revolution was supposed to sideline. The police force is one. Its brutality was a major cause of the 2011 revolution, while the reform of the force was one of its implicit demands. But the police’s enthusiasm for Morsi’s fall has helped rehabilitate them in some eyes.

[…] for most revolutionaries, success does not just depend on who is in charge. As Kirollos points out, throughout the days of both Mubarak and Morsi, and during the military junta that split their regimes, one revolutionary chant has been a constant at protests:

Until that regime falls, rather than just its figureheads, the revolution will continue.  http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/egypt
