Over a Week of Protests, Egyptians Still Demand Mubarak Step Down

February 1, 2011

I’m still following the Egyptian demonstrations with an incredible amount of excitement. Almost 2 million people demonstrating in Tahrir Square in Cairo, with hundreds of thousands of people in many other cities around Egypt. Demonstrators from across all social and class boundaries are out in the streets demanding Mubarak “step down”.

There is finally a position forming in USA foreign policy with Senator John Kerry saying

“President Hosni Mubarak must accept that the stability of his country hinges on his willingness to step aside gracefully to make way for a new political structure.”

in an op-ed in todays New York Times.

There are a handful of great photos of street graffiti and stencils on Sarah Carr’s Flickr page.


Sarah’s images can be seen along with blogposts from Egypt at

Some Articles worth checking out:
