Egypt Rally at United Nations Plaza
On Saturday the 5th, United Nations Plaza was the setting for a small solidarity protest with the people of Egypt who are demanding that their corrupt, U.S.-sponsored leaders step down.
A block away, there were dozens of policemen standing around in case somebody decided to cause any damage, but that wasn't the tone of the event at all.
About half the crowd seemed to be actual Egyptians while the other half were activists from ANSWER and other groups who are in opposition to Israel's treatment of the Palestinians.
For news about the daily, changing situation in Egypt, click here for the Qatar-based Al Jazeera English website. It's a wonderful antidote to the United States media, whose credibility about the Mideast went out the window long ago, particularly after their mendacious buildup to the Iraq invasion.
