Egypt: the plans of the military are bourgeois, not democratic

According to the transition plan designed by the military, before any elections take place the current provisional government (or a committee named by it) will design a new constitution on which the citizens will only be able to say yes or no. That's not democratic: there will be no new constituent assembly and the current islamist constitution will only be amended, retaining elements like the officialdom of Sunni Islam and the Sharia as inspiration for the law.

The government is already full of imperial puppets like Mohamed El-Baradei and neoliberal economist Hazem El-Beblawi, supporter of the cut of subsidies to basic food and oil. This non-democratic government is, in the analysis of the Revolutionary Communist Grouping (ACR) of Chile, a "Bonapartist" regime determined to keep the cooperation with the Zionist colonial enclave and to carry on a deeply anti-social economic policy.

All this shows that the military intervention, far from being the culmination of the Egyptian Revolution is still a mere incident in a clearly unfinished process because all those were exactly the reasons that brought millions to the streets to oppose Morsi and Mubarak before him. As soon as the anti-social neoliberal policies manifest in full, the streets of Egypt will be boiling again most probably. These people will solve nothing, their only advantage being the lack of a class movement worth that name among Egyptians.
