The end of Mubarak - 2 million in Tahrir Square


These are the best places to find out what is going on in Egypt. Btw, Egypt is now 100% disconnected from the world as Noor group was disconnected Monday. Right now numerous Arabic tv stations are carrying Al-Jazeera Arabic on their sat signals. They are making sure that the world and Egypt sees this.

Al-Jazeera is still broadcasting. I guess you can consider them a pirate tv station now.

Hosni Mubarak
Tahrir Square

I'm posting this because the Egypt live-posts have stopped and today is a major movement in Egyptian history.

I think we will witness Mubarak leaving Egypt either today or by Friday. The people are now camping in Tahrir Square and across Egypt in protest places and they refuse to leave until Mubarak leaves.

No one is working. The economy of Egypt has halted and will not be restarted until Mubarak leaves.

This is my contact list from my LJ, DW, and IJ. I update there when I find new information. But I'm mainly focused on inside information and live-posts not articles on the protests themselves. Thus this is more as-it-happens reporting then anything.

You can post any articles, pictures, video you wish in the comments.

Let's make this a bursting revolution live-post. Because the end of a dictatorship is nigh.
