Talking Bout a Revolution

Dear World

Hopefully Egypt is on the point of change as huge numbers of people are marching for political and social freedom. Yesterday took maybe even Egyptians by surprise at the volume of protesters out there and it goes on, in spite of severe attacks by police and intimidation tactics. This is a country where 'worra el shams' /'behind the sun'has a sinister meaning; where there is still a list of 'the disappeared' growing. Listen to this audio clip by Jack Shenker, a journalist for the Guardian living here in Cairo and a friend of mine. It is chilling stuff.

  1. Thrilling...I hope everything will be fine, finally...
    I don't want to see or read anything that could remember me the Romanian 1989 'revolution'...
