Egipto: sin constitución, parlamento… ni control

El Cairo. Un par de horas después que los partidarios de Mohamed Mursi festejaron con gritos de ¡Alajú Akbar! la primera elección democrática de un presidente islamita en el mundo árabe, una joven cristiana egipcia se acercó a la mesa del café donde estaba sentado y me contó que acababa de ir a la iglesia.

Nunca había visto un lugar tan vacío, me dijo. Todos tenemos miedo.

Quiero decir que el discurso tranquilizador de Mursi, el domingo –CNN y la BBC pusieron mucho énfasis en su mensaje incluyente, porque encaja con la narrativa occidental sobre Medio Oriente (progresista, no sectario, etc.)–, fue un esfuerzo bastante raquítico, en el que el ejército recibió tantos elogios como la policía por la última etapa de la revolución egipcia.

Dicho en términos escuetos, Mursi se lanzará cuesta abajo en el camino a la democracia egipcia con latas amarradas a los pies, con temor y odio entremezclados entre los viejos mubarakitas y la élite empresarial y, desde luego, entre los cristianos, mientras los perros de ataque uniformados del Consejo Supremo de las Fuerzas Armadas seguirán socavando las potestades que todo presidente de Egipto debería tener. Carece de constitución, de parlamento y del derecho a comandar el ejército de su país.

Miner’s resistance in the north of #Spain (chronicle)

Well of Santiago de Aller, mine area of El Caudal. Five miners have spontaneously decided to rest at the bottom of the mine, for 22 days, in protest for the cuts in subsidies and budgets with the government signed for 2006 -2012 and now intend to violate, affecting around 5,000 families. From the five comrades who went to the depth of the mine, one of them abandoned his mission due to a severe anxiety attack, and another one was almost suffocated from within the well, with smoke canisters from a riot.

Area of Nalón, Candín Well – four of the five miners who started the 600-m deep closure continue 23 days after. One of them had to rise the surface, due to an anxiety attack, the other four still resist underground, despite the prohibition of the head of the mine to not bring them down anything at all. That same afternoon they got provided of water, food and blankets. Yesterday at lunchtime, a group of comrades from 15M Indignados Madrid sent them the cage down with flowers and a note of encouragement, admiration and solidarity.
