youth spark egypt

see this video of Asmaa Mahfouz of the April 6 Youth Movement – a dominant youth & young adult front calling for regime change, human rights and democracy.
Mahfouz goes hard on sideline spectators, calling them traitors for their unwillingness to stand for freedom. this video went viral and apparently helped move major demonstrations in tahir square on january 25th that sparked the uprising in egypt since.
Mahfouz is compelling, courageous and inspiring. those of us in the US that allow our government to support dictators like mubarek should find a fraction of her grit and demand that president obama stand with the democratic aspirations of the egyptian people.
or there’s always this..
