Mubarak is gone! 11-2-11


I’m reading some accounts on the reaction of the people at Tahrir about Mubarak’s speech, and they describe anger and tears… I didn’t see that in the section where I was, by the mosque. From the beginning I saw disbelief, and then confirmation: they knew he wasn’t going. After, I saw energy and readiness to continue, this revolution will go for more

      Throughout history, pharaohs and rulers of Egypt have only left palaces after their deaths. I hope that will not be the case with Mubarak. I was up until 3 last night to watch him step down, but the old dude is too stubborn.

I worry about the military. Everyone in the world is watching Egypt’s people’s rebellion. My heart and soul are with them…..

    • Témoris Grecko That has happened already, but with an armoured vehicle with a water cannon. A guy stood in front and forced it to stop. There was no guarantee it’d do that, the police has launched vans to run over protesters. There are videos of all this, I can’t find them for ou know though!

      I saw the white van careening through the crowd on MSNBC. It hit several people and was travelling at a high rate of speed. This process of change in Egypt is going to be VERY interesting for all to witness. Because the world is watching, will the military step out of the governing seat and allow for the development of a representative government. As for now, the people rejoice, as they should, for tomorrow comes the work of building a new country and spreading the wealth in an equitable manner. Spreading the wealth does not necessarily imply socialism, it means that the wealth of the country should not be held by a mere few. In the USA about 90% of the wealth is held by less than 20% of the people. We need to protest!!

Today will be key in this historical Revolution. Tahrir square is already full of people, but hundreds of thousands and millions all over the country will come out after noon prayers (it’s 11:31 here in Cairo). What will the army do? Will it bow to Mubarak or respond to the people? Will they attack or protect? Women and men of good will, watch and feel!

Mubarak left Cairo, according to a Al Arabiya TV network report. He’d be in Sharm el Sheikh, the Sinai’s resort. This is not his resignation, yet, but it is telling that he’s leaving the capital in times of trouble. I hear rumors about a split in the army between a pro- and an anti- Mubarak factions. Tahrir square is absolutely packed with people.

People are calling me to warn me about a renewed persecution against journalists. “I see soldiers taking away Japanese journalists”, a local colleague said two minutes ago. The protests are spreading to the presidential palace in Heliopolis and they don’t want this (or what the security forces will do) to be reported.

There was a massive explosion of joy in the little Republic of Tahrir and in Cairo’s downtown, it shook my skin and my ears and my heart, my eyes full of flags and smiles and jumping and hugging (never got so many male kisses in my life -pity that girls don’t give them here), and in the news I confirm that the happiness is national

Hundreds of thousands of people in my sight, millions along the Nile, from alexandria to Abu Simbel, all chanting and yelling and crying, still finding it a bit difficult to believe, is this true?

The people I knew were laughing or crying of joy, but I was annoying and made questions like that one. They know, they are aware, and they are willing to keep their demands, stay in Tahrir and carry on demonstrating all over the country. But now, said Oumar, now… let’s celebrate!

12 hours ago ·  · 

At some point, though, the celebration should give itself a moment to remember its shuhada, those who fell in the struggle. It took more than 300 dead (documented so far, they are more) and the destruction of the national economy for Mubarak to understand he had to leave. They died and he will enjoy his billions. Sorry for this bitterness. May they rest in peace
