رسالة محمد رمضان الاولى من محبسه
عزيزي بيبرس
معلهش انى مالحقتش اجيبلك لعبة سوبر مان اللي انت طلبتها مني بس ان شاء الله اجيبهالك ممكن بعد ايام او بعد سنين بيني وبينكً مش عارف مخبيين لابوك ايه
انا عرفت من امك انها قدمتلك في المدرسة وعرفت كمان انها وهي بتقدم طلبوا حضوري وهي قالتلهم اني مسافر مع اني كان نفسي تقولهم ان جوزي مسجون ، انا بقى عايزك انت لما تدخل المدرسة ويسألوك فين ابوك قوللهم (ابويا مسجون ) ولو سألوك مسجون ليه قولهم :
علشان كان بيحلم … بيحلم بوطن افضل، قوللهم كمان ابويا مسجون عشان فقير وكان بينحاز للفقير ، وقوللهم انه حاول يواجه بس الكلاب كانوا كتير ، وان ابوك مش مجرم وان المجرم هو اللي حبسه ، كلمهم عن الثورة وازاي ان اللي خلقها شباب جميل عنيد بس ناقصهم شوية تنظيم وناقصهم يعرفوا ان نظام عبد الفتاح السيسي هو نظام الثورة المضادة وانه نظام شرس لازم يتواجه بالتكتيك مش بالعواطف وان المظاهرات مش هدف انما هي وسيلة لتحقيق هدف نجاح الثورة ،كان فيه وسائل وأليات تانية كتير زي اننا نقسم نفسنا مجموعات تحرك قطاعات الشعب على الاضراب العام .
بس اوعدني ان لو دة حصل انك تكون اول واحد مشارك في الاضراب وتقول لامك انك مش نازل المدرسة يوم الاضراب
المهم اني مش هطول عليك خلي بالك من امك واخواتك البنات وتبقى تروح تبص على جدتك باستمرار ،انا عارف انها محتاجالك اوي اليومين دول عشان انت بتفكرها ب بابا
ابوك اللي بيحبك اوي

Mohamed Ramadan’s First Letter from his Detention Place
Dear Baibars,
Sorry I didn’t have time to get you the Superman toy as you requested. I will get it, God willing, in a matter of days or may be years I don’t know yet. Entre nous, I don’t know what they are cooking for your Dad.
Your Mum said she has applied for school for you. She also said when they asked about the father she told them I was out of town. I wished she had told them my husband is imprisoned.
When asked, I want you to tell them my Dad is imprisoned. If they ask for the reason tell them my Dad is imprisoned for daring to dream of a better country, for being poor and standing with the poor people. Tell them he sought to confront, but they were too many. Tell them my Dad is no criminal; the criminal is the one who put him in prison.
Talk to them about the Revolution, how it was introduced by beautiful youth who only lack some organization, knowing for fact that the regime of Abd El-Fattah El-Sissi is the counter-revolution regime, and that it is a mighty one that needs strategy not just emotions to fight. Tell them demonstrations are not the end but only the means to a successful revolution. There are several other tools and tactics such as dividing ourselves in groups to reach out to people about a general strike. But promise me if this is to happen you would be the first to participate, and tell your Mum you are not attending school on that day.
I won’t be long. Take care of your Mum and sisters, and go visit your grandma regularly. I know she will need to see you a lot these days because you will remind her of her own son.
Your Loving Father,
Mohamed Ramadan
