April 6 movement holds Iftar in Azhar Park

April 6 Movement will host an Iftar, the breaking fast meal at sunset in the Islamic month of Ramadan, in Azhar Park when activists Asmaa Mohfouz and Loay Nagaty received military council concession of the lawsuits against them.

The April 6 Movement demands freedom, social justice and refuse military courts for civilians.

Many representatives of other movements and celebrities participated in the Iftar, such as broadcasters Hamdy Qandil, Gamila Ismail, Wael Ebrashi, Mumdouh Hamza, Abdel Galil Mostafa and George Isaac.

Member of the April 6 Movement, Mohamed Adel, said the movement invited a member of the Military council, Mohamed Assar, to the Iftar but he refused, because he was invited to Police Iftar.

The former coordinator of Tageer Association, Hassan Nafea, saluted the military council s decision to end the military trials of Asmaa Mahfouz and Loay Nagaty. This decision is a right one, Nafea said.

Nafea also said civilians must not trialed before military court and said, We will not allow carrying out procedures of the former regime.

Meanwhile, Mamdouh Hamza described the decision as military council present of the party. Hamza said the military council promised not to put civilians before military courts except the civilians used weapons or causes of assaulting women.

Hamza claimed the April 6 Movement resumed their political activities until achieving the protests demands.

Hamdy Qandil said Asmaa and Nagaty exculpatory came too late and it should have been announced since their detention. Transferring civilians to military courts is regrettable, Qandil said.

He added during the former regime, military courts did not exceed 2,000 and yet they reached 12,000 after the Egyptian January 25 Revolution.

Gamila Ismail addressed military council and said, Do not condemn our youth. She hopes the military council could understand the activists and regard them as future-makers.

Gamila confirmed political movements must agree on the demands of the January 25 Revolution.

The April 6 Movement hosted the party at the entrance of the park. The Egyptian singer, Ramy Essam, sang some revolution songs and celebrities gave speeches.
