Over the past 9 months the decisions and actions of SCAF have been a constant disappointment for Egyptians; almost every Friday, there was a demonstration of some sort fighting one form of injustice or the other. Egypt has not changed! It is even safe to say that things have deteriorated! Evacuating Tahrir square by force on several occasions in March, April, June, and Ramadan, random arrests, military trials for civilians (more than 12,000 Egyptian), virginity tests to humiliate Egyptian girls who were arrested from the square (denied at first then confirmed anonymously to CNN correspondent), draft laws prohibiting peaceful demonstrations, the appointment of a Minister of Information( one of the main demands of the revolution was freedom of press), members from SCAF putting a low ceiling for freedom of expression on talk shows (Dina AbdelRahman lost her successful morning TV show on Dream because she dared question an army official live on the phone), bloggers being arrested for criticizing SCAF (Maikel Nabil), activists detained (Alaa AbdelFattah), a long list of human rights violations, violence against protesters in front of the Israeli embassy, churches being burnt or demolished, hundreds of Christians killed in the Maspiro massacre in October, the officers who killed protesters in January 25 revolution were not prosecuted, and slow trials of former minister of interior, former president and his two sons, former corrupt ministers, and corrupt businessmen. Prices continued to skyrocket and most Egyptians struggled with their jobs and meeting their essential needs.
