Fri. 2/4/2011: Crowds and good spirits in Tahrir Square (and Live Feed)

Live Feeds from Egypt:
**HERE**


KW writes: Not sure how many updates I can give today. So, above is the link again to Common Dreams where they have live feed, including Al-Jazeera.

Some good news of today: Hundreds of thousands of anti-government demonstrators in Tahrir Square. Al-Jazeera also reports that there are many famous Egpytian artists, actors, and musicians who have come to Tahrir Square…

It is 4pm in Egypt. People are filing into Tahrir Square [Liberation Square]. The curfew is set for 5pm, but Al-Jazeera says there is no sign of people living. Al-Jazeera is calling it “Departure Day” for Mubarak, some of the English-language press is saying “Day of Leaving” (don’t they get poetry?)

(It is so funny! Al-Jazeera is showing feed from the official, Egyptian-government-run tv, state television. They are saying that there reporters will fix all the errors reported from the “foreign press”. On state tv, they are interviewing someone who is saying he found only about 3,ooo demonstrators at Tahrir Square, and that many had pro-Mubarak signs. It is pretty comical.)

  1. I was listening to Al-Jazeera reporters talking about pro-Mubarak people trying to get into Tahrir Square to cause trouble. Some people were saying that they are paid, or at least partisans who work for oil companies etc.

    I just realized that these activist, pro-oppressive, government thugs remind me of the “paid, Republican protesters” who went to Florida to make trouble during the 2000 Presidential recount. Those “protesters” were more often than not, staff members from various Republican candidates and committees.

    So, different country, same strategy for people with too much money and power (and the people who serve and circle them).
