In the wake of deaths totaling over 300, the Egyptian army has vowed not to use any display of force against protesters, with Egyptian army officials releasing this statement; "To the great people of Egypt, your armed forces, acknowledging the legitimate rights of the people... have not and will not use force against the Egyptian people.".
This Statement was welcomed with applause from the Egyptian public who have always maintained a massive amount of respect for the Country's powerful army. After this statement was released, the number of protesters nearly tripled in volume as many men felt it safe bringing their women and children out to make a stand against the regime, because of this the atmosphere has changed from one of violence to a carnival-like atmosphere with dancing and music.
