My Egypt Revolution’s posts: February 8


Tahrir square is like a carnival today. Lots of circles of debate, small demonstrations, humorous art galleries, open-air dancing halls, music jams, multi-faith prayers, spontaneous meetings, puppets, costumes, food, tea… and the common and loud demand for Hosni Mubarak’s resignation. Rock like an Egyptian!

    • Témoris Grecko We’re hearing a terrible rumor, though… Twenty-five people would have been killed today in Aswan… still unconfirmed, though

    • Larry Roberts ‎”What one hears while strolling around are all the pent-up hopes, aspirations and frustrations of Egyptians for the last 50 years. I know the “realist” experts believe this will all be shut down soon. Maybe it will. But for one brief shining moment, forget the experts and just listen. You have not heard this before. It is the sound of a people so long kept voiceless, finally finding, testing and celebrating their own voices.” Thomas Friedman

    • Larry Roberts Temoris, I made contact with a few young Iranians, some living in Paris and others in Tehran. I made a mistake of using the word “Arab” while speaking of Iran and was immediately unfriended by many. I “think” I found perhaps Iranians are not as open to outsiders like me? I know I made an unpardonable mistake of Persian vs Arab. It was my ignorance, yet the rigidity of response was surprising.

    • Témoris Grecko This is a region of strong nationalisms. They take it very seriously and many don’t forgive mistakes like these. I’m not surprised.

After 15 days of demonstrations and government-sponsored terror, killings and chaos, the economic impact of the Revolution in the economy (of individuals as well as the country’s) has been huge. The fear was that this would erode the movement’s support. But today we witnessed the biggest concentration yet!
