Egyptian Counterrevolution Update: To lift or not to lift the curfew !?

The Junta, which has banned strikes and now routinely gives virginity tests to female protesters, had said their curfew would end June 15. Now they have decided to conduct a poll on Facebook and, well, wouldn't you know it:

Up till now the majority of the Facebook users who participated in the vote want the curfew to continue till the end of insecurity ...

I find it impossible to believe that a majority of Egyptians support the curfew. I suspect this means the poll will be used to justify the continued oppression.!+Mail
