The people have spoken, no matter the perceived strengths of the mukhabarat (secret police) your time is up Hosni Mubarak. Al-Qahira means “the city victorious” in Arabic, and once again it’s people will be victorious!
Get out Mubarak, Saudi Arabia is waiting for you!
On a sidenote, have you noticed the lack of press coverage this is getting? This is as big as the Tienanmen Square uprising, but most of the western press are strangely quiet.
The Egyptian government is blocking twitter and facebook to suppress any reports of their brutal crackdown on the protesters.
There are some excellent people on twitter who are posting up photo’s all the time.
There’s also the facebook group of “We are all Khaled Said” who are constantly updating on the situation.
The Guardian have a rolling blog keeping you updated too.
A UK demonstration to show solidarity with the Egyptian protesters is planned outside the Egypt Embassy in London today between 3pm and 6pm
Seems like social media have trounced the traditional channels.
