The hashtag “Support Iman Al Bahr Darwish” topped the Egyptian trend list, and the highest interaction on the Twitter platform, after statements by the Egyptian artist criticizing the government’s handling of the Renaissance Dam crisis.
The Eighth Bulletin – Your publication (12/06/2021) I followed up this support campaign, which escalated after an attack on the artist, Iman Al-Bahr Darwish, on social media, and through some Egyptian media.
Iman al-Bahr Darwish had written on his Facebook page a post – which he later deleted – in which he said, “I read a story about President Sisi assigning the government to desalinate sea water! After the maneuvers and the protectors of the Nile who laugh at people, if this agreement is not canceled through Parliament So wait for the calamities in general, and do not believe all those who spread disgrace flags, if the President of the Republic himself is doing what makes his threats to Ethiopia in naught.”
The Egyptian artist’s publications found a great interaction on Facebook, so Bahadur al-Jundi wrote, “In the time in which we are those who say the word of truth in Egypt, it will be very expensive, so that is why someone is like Iman Al Bahr Darwish. “.
And the media, Asaad Taha, tweeted, “The media campaign that Iman Al-Bahr Darwish is facing is fierce, and its meaning is: It is not allowed at all, in any form, to express an opinion.”
On the other hand, Sahar Mokhtar said, “It does not mean that we desalinate sea water, that this despairs of the issue, but any country desalinates sea water to be used for other purposes such as agriculture or the like, and an attempt to provide drinking water, and this is not linked to the Renaissance Dam because the policy of our government is clear and strict.” .
