PFLP: On the third anniversary of Al-Hakim’s departure, a “sweeping popular revival” on the Arab streets

Popular uprising against the Egyptian government.

The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:

On the third anniversary of the departure of Al-Hakim, we see arising now across the Arab world a new Arab popular movement, demanding an end to tyranny and corruption and the establishment of democracy, human rights and economic justice. These popular upsurges are shaking the ground in the Arab world and posing a new and powerful challenge to U.S. imperialism, Zionism, and the Arab regimes which have enabled them by trampling upon their own people for decades.

In the Front’s statement, issued on January 26, 2010, the PFLP said that Al-Hakim was a historic leader who lit a flame in the darkness of occupation, aggression and oppression, the flame of popular revolution and the path of freedom that shatters the shackles of dependency and hegemony, raising the banner of resistance and unity as the only path for the restoration of our land and our freedom.
