The end of Mubarak's rule

'10pm, Monday 31 Jan: A selection of slogans adorn the walls and banners in the square. One reads "Gas for the Egyptian people, not Zionist tanks".

A big professionally made banner declares: "Egyptian engineers support the Egyptian peoples' protests and want them to bring this political system down! Together for the sake of Egypt."

Other slogans include "Game over Mubarak" and "Off with his head"(in English...perhaps they have been watching the students confronting Charles and Camilla).

One family, including an elderly grandmother and young children, sit together around their own poster which simply reads: "Mubarak fuck off".'

Thanks Ghassan for posting the link on fb.

This would have been impossible in Egypt 20 years ago, or even 10 years ago. This is a new age in the Middle East, when you can tell your President to fuck off, in writing. It's about time!
