Sisi might be Trump's favorite dictator, but he doesn't seem to be #Egyptians' favorite any more. https://twitter.com/HosamYahiaAJ/status/1175220059586912258

Saudi Arabia ‘bullies’ wealthy families to pump cash into Aramco oil IPO as a “patriotic duty”; the magnates targeted include those who were locked up in the Ritz Carlton back in 2017/18: https://www.ft.com/content/e9fe2862-dada-11e9-8f9b-77216ebe1f17

It’s happening, anti-Sisi protests in Egypt. May not spiral but a lot is happening these days, and this does seem like the beginning of a new phase.

Rumbles of unrest in Cairo tonight as Sisi flies off to the UN General Assembly, leaving multiplying accusations of corruption behind him. Multiple videos circulating of small but extremely rare protests. https://twitter.com/mohamedsadek_19/status/1175118837815160835

Background to tonight's protests in Cairo: An Egyptian military contractor has come out with major allegations of Sisi regime corruption, and an unprecedented series of apparent security officers have started speaking out on YouTube https://madamasr.com/ar/2019/09/20/feature/سياسة/صوّر،-ذيع،-شيّر-حفلة-اتهامات-على-الس/

Difficult to really know what these small protests in Egypt mean, but the very fact of their existence in the face of the current climate of repression is not nothing. Nonetheless, the regime's greatest risk factor is not mass mobilization but internal regime splits.

Just passed through Tahrir Square. Many police in riot gear, as well as plainclothes officers and regular police, along with vehicles. Traffic backed up, cars honking. Small crowds of civilians looking on from the edges of the square.

Something serious is happening in Egypt. Small, and very brave, anti-Sisi protests broke out in Cairo in the last hour *and were not immediately and brutally crushed*. Meanwhile, Sisi is on his way to #UNGA74 . All this escalated in two weeks. I do not expect it to end tonight. https://twitter.com/omar22016363/status/1175130824850718720
