LATUFF INSPIRES EGYPTIAN PROTESTERS

Demonstrations were held in Cairo yesterday demanding the ouster of President Mubarak and calling for reforms. This was inspired by recent events in Tunisia and by the works of our talented Associate, Carlos Latuff. Carlos’ works were featured on many of the placards carried in the event.

Egyptian demonstrators hold up placards during a protest in central Cairo to demand the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak and calling for reforms on January 25, 2011. The protesters, carrying flags and chanting slogans against the government, rallied in a protest inspired by the uprising in Tunisia which led to the ouster of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

    The gap between rich and poor in Egypt is too large and this cannot go on any longer. People rise up for a reason and expect changes for the better.
    Puppet Governments have been installed to serve their Master and do not give a crap about their own people.
    This should be a wakeup call for the rest of the puppets from Maghreb to the Hashemite Kingdom and beyond.

    A Muslim associate once told me of an expression they use ” a known enemy is better than an unknown one”. Point here is that Mubarak my not be our true friend but the next guy could be worse. Stability needs to return to Egypt.
