Lit Up is the Arabic Street

Update 2 Feb: Tahrir Square is turning into a bloodbath. Reports coming in that plain-clothed security forces have been let loose on the Square, and most exits blocked, so that those inside are trapped. Keep up with what’s happening by searching either #egypt on Twitter, and refreshing.

Update for those of you in Ottawa: There will be a march on Saturday at 2pm. Will post details here as they become available.

If you’re interested in reading / learning / getting to know what’s happening, I recommend taking a look here:

Sharif Kouddous’ (of Democracy Now!) twitter, from the streets of Cairo

Al Jazeera’s Middle East section

Democracy Now!’s coverage

This is one of the times I believe that we are in fact watching history in the making. Keep your eyes wide awake, please.
