President on July 23 Revolution Anniversary: We Will Go Forth for Better Future for Egypt
Just as the July 23, 1952 Revolution was a defining moment in Egypt’s contemporary history, the January 2011 Revolution is a crucial correction to the repressive, despotic deviations and developments that followed since then.
Monday, July 23,2012 20:46

Mohamed Morsi, President of Egypt, affirmed that the January 2011 revolution is a long-overdue extension of the revolutionary history of the Egyptian nation for freedom, democracy and social justice.


"The nation will never forget the sacrifices of its people for this noble goal."

In his speech on Sunday evening, on the anniversary of the July 23 Revolution, Morsi pointed out that "societal empowerment and popular participation support are the most important factors that protect our experience and reinforce our revolution, for which we all shall work.

"With our own will, determination and resolve, we shall forge forward to a better future and new horizons for our country, our homeland, Egypt. The Egyptian nation is always driven by the will of its people and the great legacy of its significant history, to correct perversions and deviations."

President Morsi further said that the July 1952 Revolution fought a great battle to achieve the full evacuation of occupying forces and independence; and was a model in support of liberation movements and the establishment of the concept of social justice and planned development.

Morsi added, "The July Revolution succeeded in some of its noble goals, but failed in others such as democracy and public freedoms. This is evident in all the regimes that ruled Egypt after the great revolution, as a result of fraud and tyranny practiced by those fascist regimes that drained Egypt’s resources.

"It was incumbent on the Egyptian people to correct the course of that revolution, to put it on the right track once again, and rise yet again in this second revolution with the will of its citizens."

Dr. Morsi further added, "We are endeavoring for a comprehensive national renaissance, relying on our own efforts and hard work, through popular participation by all segments of the Egyptian society, for the protection of our great revolution, with even more effort and sacrifices.

"We must celebrate the July 1952 Revolution with more determination than ever, to exert greater effort to push Egypt onto the ranks of the developed world’s leading nations."
