The Coup did not happen a year ago because the military thought that’s what the people wanted. Telling the regime now what you want is also not going to move them to respect the popular will.
Protests do not change the vested interests of the army.
What motivated them to overthrow the government, will continue to motivate them to hold on to power, and the more successful they are at securing the interests of international business, the more support they will have from the corporate elite to do so. And they have been ruthlessly effective at catering to the wishes of business.
There are two ways, literally only two ways, to end military rule (if that is the objective), and neither one of them is demonstrations.
One; you have to demolish the military’s industrial and commercial assets so that they are left with no remaining stake in the economy, and thus no reason to manage it. I don’t personally see this as feasible, though it is not impossible.
Or two; you have to completely undermine and disrupt the profitability of multinational corporations and foreign investment projects in Egypt to prove that the military is incompetent at safeguarding the interests of the international elite, who will then replace military rule with some other puppet government.
The second option is superior insofar as it is easier, and deals more directly with the actual power system. Obviously, the struggle would necessarily continue after the military has been removed from management, until the corporate elite realize that the only way to safeguard their interests is to respond positively to the legitimate grievances of the population.
But companies learn fast.
