The first timer
Marwan Osman is 25 and a software engineer who lives in Alexandria. He went out in the streets for the first time on June 30 amid the mass protests against Morsy's government.
During the fuel crisis that started about a week ago, I witnessed long lines of cars waiting to get some fuel. People fought each other for a place in the lines. Every day the crisis is growing, and no action has been taken.
This event led me to imagine what will happen when more crises happen. The next one could be a food crisis -- and this time, more people will die and the whole country could collapse because of those successive crises.
The current MB [government] does not have any idea how to rule the country correctly. They can't manage the basic human needs like electricity and fuel. The economy is collapsing and not a single action [has been] taken to prevent or fix the situation.
I am considered one of the high middle-class people with high education and a respectable job. I don't face most of the problems people suffer, [so] it's amazing to share the experience [of protesting] with your country's people.
We all want Morsy to step down and the Muslim Brotherhood party to leave the political scene, for now. Who will rule next is a debate between people, whether it's the army or the liberals. But, for sure, we want a firm grip to save the country and the economy.
