OK

You are in the the 98th Child Diary of the Liveblog of the 2011 Egyptian Uprising and other uprisings spreading throughout the Mideast.  We stand with our Egyptian friends and their courageous struggle for freedom.

DO NOT REC THIS DIARY!  Rec the Mothership here.

(The idea is to keep the Mothership visible on the rec list, with links therein to the child diaries where we can discuss the events.  This prevents multiple liveblog diaries taking up slots on the rec list.)

We all thank you for your consideration.

It bears repeating - Please DO NOT Rec this diary, Rec the Mothership Diary here.

What our Egyptian brethren are fighting for according a banner held by protesters and translated to English:

1 The departure of Moubarak
2 An end to the current Parliament
3 An end of the state of emergency
4 The creation of a national united government
5 A parliament elected by the people to modify the constitution and run the presidentials elections
6 Put those responsible for the killings on trial
7 Put those responsible for stealing the country's money and other acts of corruption on trial

HOW TO HOST A CHILD DIARY:

  1.   post a comment with "I CAN HOST A CHILD" in the subject.
  2.   a shepherd will assign you a #
  3.   provide the shepherd with an email address
  4.   a shepherd will send you instructions. (it takes about 1 minute to copy and paste the sections: Title, Intro, Body, Tag)
