Chris Toensing on Egypt's Democratic Coup

program date: 
Mon, 07/22/2013

Chris Toensing of the Middle East Report talks with Bill Resnick about the recent overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood government elected a year ago in Egypt. Arguing that Morsi's government continued a number of Mubarak's neoliberal economic policies that are repressive to labor, and that it failed to provide needed order and services, Toensing suggests understanding Morsi's ouster as a kind of democratically-popular coup, and a continuation of the popular calls that began three years ago for bread, freedom, and social justice. But for the US government to recognize the events as a coup would entail a change of US policy toward Egypt.
