Army threatens Shibin Al-Kawm textile workers

I've long gotten sick of all the praise for the Egyptian army in the Western media while they're busy trying to put down the revolutionary atmosphere in Egypt since January 25th. This video shows workers at the Shibin Al-Kawm Textile Company who are on strike demonstrating outside the Al-Minufiyah Governorate headquarters, and as soon as they arrived the military sent an armoured military vehicle to intimidate them and the army commander at the scene threatened to use live ammunition to disperse the crowd. The demonstrators chant back at them "We are not afraid! We are not leaving! There is no deity but God!"
