Radwa Shoukry, 26, an Egyptian activist and computer engineer who belongs to the third camp told Daily Sabah the story of her family."My father doesn't belong to the Mus-lim Brotherhood but since the Julycoup he started to support them, whilemy uncle supports the coup and even supported Mubarak's regime long ago. Me and my younger brother are caught between the family, both of us are against both sides ruling Egypt!"
Coup supporters can be classified into three main categories, according to Radwa. The first is the elderly who already have problems with the Muslim Brotherhood and see the army as the best option for Egypt. The second is the capitalists who depend on business and want stability at any cost."This is the category of my uncle," she said.
The third category is the majority in Egypt who suffers poverty and ignorance and is only exposed to pro-coup media. "Those I cannot judge, they face really harsh conditions, they can't think further than feeding their own children," Radwa added.
According to experts, since 2011Egypt has experienced a drastic fall in both foreign investment and tourism revenues, followed by a 60 percent drop in foreign exchange reserves, a 3 percent decrease in growth, and a rapid devaluation of the Egyptian pound. All this has led to mushrooming food prices, ballooning unemployment and a shortage of fuel and cooking gas causing Egypt's worst crisis.
