Egypt’s popular revolution has seen millions of Egyptians take to the streets. It all started as a series of protests on January 25 organized by “We Are All Khaled Said” Facebook group (Khaled Said was an activist who was kidnapped and beaten into a pulp by police in Alexandria). The group’s admin, Wael Ghonim, a Google executive, was kidnapped by plain clothes police on January 27 only to be released yesterday.
Wael was in jail on January 28, a day that saw the biggest freedom marches all over the country yet. In Cairo, Tahrir Square was claimed by the people on that day and remains occupied by the people to this moment.
Since Jan 25, 300 protesters have been killed.
