We in the Muslim Brotherhood will not turn to violence

For the sake of Egypt, we will continue to take to the streets across the country peacefully to declare this coup null and void. General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is pushing the country to an unprecedented level of chaos and state violence but we will not give him a chance to turn our beloved Egypt into another Syria, or to escape questioning about his crimes.

I address world conscience and public opinion. I appeal to world humanitarian and human rights organisations. I appeal to the international delegations that came to see us in Rabaa and who testified that we were completely peaceful, to stand for democracy and expose these war crimes.

The sacrifices made so far by the defenders of legitimacy have been made in order to put an end to the military rule that humiliated the Egyptians and persecuted them for more than 60 years. We made these sacrifices in order for Egypt to become a true democratic civil state in which human dignity is sanctified and human rights respected.

These sacrifices will continue until the Egyptian dream comes true. The counter-revolution will be defeated and the great Egyptian revolution will prevail.
