Some journalists have recently spoken of the 6 April Youth Movement monopolizing the 25 January revolution, and this is simply not true. The 6 April Youth Movement was the first to call for protests on the 25 January 2011 to rage against oppression, corruption and dictatorship, but no-one can monopolize the revolution.

What is happening now has nothing to do with the 25 January revolution. The return of torture in police stations has nothing to do with the 25 January revolution or any other revolution. The efforts of the current system to release Ahmed Ezz and the other figures of the Mubarak era have nothing to do with the revolution, and the spread of corruption and bribery as what is happening now has nothing to do with the revolution, nor does the return of the butchers of the security system to their positions and the control of the media and the lies and manipulation and the tarnishing of reputations…all this has nothing to do with the revolution or its principles. And the random murder in demonstrations and universities, and the arrests of all who had a hand in 25 January certainly has nothing to do with the revolution..
And what is happening now confirms that revenge is being taken on the 25 January revolution, and what is happening now is getting back at the revolution, and within days everyone will be surprised with the release of all the figures of corruption from the Mubarak era and the full-fledged return of his oppressive system. Some of the faces that played a role in the revolution have been used to ease the return of the oppressive system, some of whom are being misled and mose of whom are seeking a position of power in the new face of the system. They are complicit in the crime, for resisting the return of corruption and oppression is the most noble national duty….
