Why Riot?

. . . This year nobody went out to celebrate the revolution.  Instead we went out to finish what we started in January 2011. . . .  “There’s no food.  Muslim Brothers, liars all!  You tricked us in the name of religion!” . . .  We came out because we had no other choice in dealing with a regime that imprisons, tortures, and murders our revolution while honoring and protecting those who oppress, kill, and exploit.  Why are prices skyrocketing day after day while our wages stay the same? . . .  Why is the army stealing people’s land and killing them in Qursaya and elsewhere? . . .
