Subversive protest: Egyptian protestor kisses riot police officer

Subversive protest: Egyptian protestor kisses riot police officer

Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things. And he’s been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interest in the region, the Middle East peace efforts; the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing relationship with Israel. I would not refer to him as a dictator. — Joe Biden, US Vice President

I think Benjamin Netanyahu might be sweating even more than Mubarak right now. Who will help quarantine Gaza after this? — Naomi Klein

Overwhelmed by the courage of Egyptians standing up to a regime they know will show them no mercy. — Naomi Klein

Supporting the Egyptians (that unfortunately cannot read this, because their government blocked Internet today). — Paulo Coelho

Following Friday payers they took to the streets calling for the hated Hosni Mubarak to go. The previous night there had been mass arrests of opponents to the hated regime.

If reports comming out of Egypt tonight are correct, the protesters have taken control of the streets, have driven the security thugs off the streets, the ruling party’s headquarters have been set on fire, a police headquarters has been set on fire.

Barack Obama, Hilary Clinton, William Hague have lost all touch with reality. They call on the government in Egypt to listen to the people on the street, to carry out reform. Last year this would have been appropriate but now too little too late. The president has to resign, the elite has to resign, the ruling party has to be disbanded and its assets handed to the state.

All it would take is one phone call from Clinton or Obama for Hosni Mubarak to go.

Obama should call an emergency press conference calling for Hosni Mubarak to stand down. Should praise the people of Egypt for their courage in ridding the country of a tyrant. Should apologise to the people of Egypt for keeping the tyrant in power.

Hosni Mubarak showed he was as out of touch with realtity as Obmama et al. He blamed the people on the streets for causing the violence.

The former UN Secretary General and before that close ally of Hosni Mubarak and Egyption Foreign Secretary showed how out of touch he too was. He claimed Mubarak was loved by the Egptian people. He also tried to claim the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood was behind the street protests. The latter no doubt a tactic to scare the West.

In Cairo local residents have removed passwords from their wi-fi routers so that people on the street can access the internet.

Shame on Vodafone who acceded to a request from the regime to shut down their network. One more reason to occupy Vodafone in the UK Uncut day of protests this weekend.

One again US hypocrisy is exposed: We bring democracy to the world.

unarmed protesters took on the forces of repression shouting we are peaceful protesters.

When a government deploys its security forces against its own people, it has no mandate to remain in power.

One by one the dominoes fall. Tunisia, now Egypt. No regime in the Middle East is safe.

We are all Tunisians now. We are all Egyptians now.

Do your bit to support the people of Egypt. Swamp Egyptian Embassies with calls for the dictator to go.
