33 Dead as Egypt’s Junta Continues to Crush Dissent

At least 33 people are dead today as Egypt’s military junta continues to move against civilian protesters who object to the idea that the military will retain unchecked power even after the convoluted multi-year series of elections takes place.
The protests began on Friday and continues to grow throughout the weekend. The junta’s cabinet has even offered to resign as the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces has urged “crisis talks” with pro-democracy dissenters.

The violence has brought all campaigning for the elections, which were supposed to begin on Friday, to a complete halt. The military is insisting that they will continue as scheduled but with their plans to include in the constitution a formal assurance that the civilian government will never have real oversight over the military it seems mostly an afterthought anyhow.
