Under the pressure of the Kasba II demonstrations, the interim government made a number of decisions to further purge the state apparatus of relics of the Old Order; at first ministers and then members of the Democratic Constitutional Rally (rcd) were prohibited from participation in government and then in the elections, although Qaid es‑Sebsi, transition premier, returned to lead disorganized secular forces for the 2014 elections. In Egypt, demands spread on several levels. As normally occurs in riots, objec‑ tives continued to grow after Mubarak’s resignation on 1 February 2011 to cover incidents emerging from the protests themselves.
Negotiations occur primarily within the uprising, as two counter tendencies develop. On one hand, as noted, factions crystallize and harden, focusing inwardly on their internal characteristics and interests and on their differences regarding the Tactical Question. The conflict of militias against the government’s army spawns a structure of autonomous local groups with secret organizations eluding any central command. Because of the danger of infiltrations from the government, there is as much distrust among the rebel groups as there is between the rebels and the government (Quandt 1969).
Elsewhere workers practiced strikes and sit‑ins that were forbidden under the Old Order and embarrassing to the New and then, in Tunisia, protested against a new government order banning protests. In Egypt, personal security was literally up for grabs, in both residential neighborhoods and downtown. The focus on iden‑ tity in the first (2011) round of elections, paradoxically, brings out violence against outgroups that may have benefited from the old regime’s protection. The solidarity of “everyone” swept up in the uprising turns into the solidarity of “everyone of us” against those—such as Christians, Jews, Alawites, and others—protected by the Old Order before its overthrow.
