Submission + - Egypt protests against President Hosni Mubarak ( 1

pinkushun writes: On January 25, a national holiday to commemorate the police forces, Egyptians gathered to protest against grinding poverty, government oppression and police brutality. Using Twitter and Facebook, the people instigated a series of fast-moving, rapidly shifting demos across half a dozen or more Egyptian cities. The police could not keep up – and predictably, resorted to violence. Sadly this has led to three known deaths thus far.
