What can be done? The so-called "free world" does not give a damn about the predations of the new Egyptian military regime. Especially with the distraction of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq and the current power struggle in Ukraine between NATO and Russia. : ( Unfortunately any armed uprising, even moderately successful against the regime in Cairo will either be co-opted by reactionary Islamist forces or put down. How popular is anarchism on the Arab street anyway?
