Update on the Egyptian Revolution - 008

And a gallery of pictures from the Egyptian revolution of January 2011.

Here is a video of determination, courage, perseverance.

People cleaning the streets.

People directing the traffic.

People feeding both the protesters and the army

See it all in the New spirit of National Pride.

I cried watching it.

And here is an album about women in this revolution

The sage continues ...

There are hundreds in Tahrir Square wearing white sheets, and on it "here is my burial shroud". One protester said: "Either I get buried in it, or I remove it when Mubarak falls".

Chants have changed over the days as Mubarak has become more stubborn and not relented and met the demand of the revolt.

It started with: الشعب يريد اسقاط النظام "The people - want - to remove the regime". Up until Friday, that was the chant.

When he appointed a vice president and prime minister, ignoring the masses on the street, the chant on Saturday and Sunday became: الشعب يريد اسقاط مبارك "The people - want - to remove Mubarak".

When he further ignored the demands, the chants on Monday became:الشعب يريد اعدام مبارك "The people - want - to execute Mubarak"

Some sources quote AlMasry Al Youm, an independent news paper, that the head of Central Security (Riot police) Ahmad Ramzi, withdrew his troops when he received orders to fire live ammunition on the crowds.
