      Egyptian Forces Beating Constitution Opponents

      AntiWar reports Egypt’s last constitution didn’t last very long before the military coup d’etat. The junta’s penned a new, more pro-military version, and that’s going to referendum this week in the nation.

      They say “referendum” as though it’s a real vote, says AntiWar, but the reality is that you vote yes or you have a discussion with the military forces on hand about why you didn’t vote yes.

      In Cairo, military personnel were openly beating opponents of the constitution on the grounds that it amounted to an “insult” to the military, a crime the junta punishes with swift and blinding violence, adds AntiWar.
