You are in the the 51st 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.)

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

HOW TO HOST A CHILD DIARY:

  1.   post a comment with "I"LL HOST CHILD #XX" in the subject.
  2.   ask for the link to the google doc template
  3.   follow instructions in doc. it takes about 1 minute to copy and paste the sections: Title, Intro, Body, Tags
  4.  email unaspenser at una [dot] spenser [at] yahoo [dot] com OR
     conchita at  sharon [dot] lynch [at] verizon [dot] net
     for more info - we all thank you for your service.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
