Where are the women of the revolution?


I have seen many people commenting on the lack of women seen in this revolution. The women of Egypt are a force to be reckoned with. You do not want to get in the way of angry Egyptian women. They are there!!

The reason that you don’t see them is because the major media outlets are not showing them! Look at blogs, watch twitter, read citizen journalism. The women of Egypt are loud & clear in their messages & their actions, what a shame they do not get the credit and coverage that they deserve.

Here are some photos of my beautiful revolutionary sisters

Let’s hope this is also the start of a feminist revolution in Egypt, it is well overdue…

Egyptians and being stubborn.


‘President’ Mubarak is still clinging on for dear life to his precious presidency. He is as stubborn as a poo that has emerged from a very constipated person that just won’t go away, no matter how many times the toilet is flushed.

He must realise by now that he cannot win in a fight with 80million people? We Egyptians are a stubborn lot, something I was reminded of at today’s solidarity protest at the Egyptian embassy in London.

He can’t kill 80 million people, he can’t possibly cling on until November, when the next presidential election is due.  Go Mubarak! Go! Enough people have died already because of your stubborness. He is determined to buy time and exhausts the minds and bodies of the protesters and observers. All the tactics are either procrastinatory or divide-and-conquer. Just like he underestimated us, we underestimated him. He thinks he can, but he can’t win, too much is at stake.
