Philadelphia organizations to protest in solidarity with Egyptian democracy movement.
 
What:  Protest in Solidarity with the Egyptian People
Where:  The Federal Building, 6th and Market Streets, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
When: 4:30 PM, January 31, 2011
Contact: phillyagainstwar@gmail.com   or 267.994.9448 (John Kirkland)

 
Peace and justice organizations from the Philadelphia area will hold a protest outside the Federal Building on January 31 at 4:30 PM. The historic of struggle of the Egyptian people for democracy and economic justice is an inspiration to us all.
We want to send a message to the people of Egypt that we support them in their fight for justice. The United States government has funded and propped up the authoritarian regime of Hosni Mubarak for 30 years. Egypt is the second largest recipient of US military aid worldwide; second only to Israel. This military aid has been used to repress the democratic aspirations of the Egyptian people.

Can anyone make sense of this Hegelian mind-fck: replacing their own installed tyrant who is empire-friendly, with a street revolution that is empire-inimical? It is like red-teaming blue-teaming an exercise where only the observers know what the real game is, but either team thinks their battle is real.

Mr. President, let me remind you of your words when you said: “To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West: Know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history”.

thousands of Egyptians are demonstrating organized by opposition parties, professional associations of judges, journalists and teachers. Several young people in Egypt, Algeria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Mauritania, had set themselves on fire in protest against lack of employment, lack of freedom, and oppression.

The recent events in Tunisia that resulted in the ouster of former Tunisian dictator Bin Ali after 23 years of authoritarian rule sent shock waves through the spines of many long serving dictators in the Arab world. Drawing inspiration from the revolt in Tunisia, thousands of Egyptians are demonstrating organized by opposition parties, professional associations of judges, journalists and teachers. Several young people in Egypt, Algeria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Mauritania, had set themselves on fire in protest against lack of employment, lack of freedom, and oppression.

Mass Street Protests in Egypt - by Stephen Lendman

An August 2009 Council on Foreign Relations Steven Cook report headlined, "Political Instability in Egypt," saying:

Facing possible instability, (m)ost analysts believe that the current Egyptian regime will muddle through its myriad challenges and endure indefinitely (with) enough coercive power to ensure" it.

It's also "entering a period of political transition. President Hosni Mubarak is (81) and reportedly" ill. His (46 year old) son Gamal "is evidently being groomed to succeed him." However, the "process could prove difficult."

"Thus, while Egypt on the surface appears stable, the potential for growing political volatility and abrupt discontinuities (ahead) should not be summarily dismissed."

"This is a serious situation, so please make the calls and contact the media."

CONSPIRACY THEORIES are rampant in the Middle East. Many people are made to believe that America and Israel are running the whole world and are behind every problem in their countries - from defective chewing gum to Farouk Hosny's failure to head UNESCO.

Speaking out against anti-Semitism is a risky business
