If you are following Egypt news, today I'll be focused on:
• Al Jazeera live coverage of Tahrir Square
• @sharifkouddous, who is currently at Tahrir Square as well
• BBC live coverage in text

That's thousands and thousands of people ignoring the curfew. Holy crap. And they were getting buzzed by fighter jets about an hour ago. (They were unfazed by said fighter jets.)

And if you're wondering what the hell is going on anyway, I like this Mother Jones post.

eta: I'm just gonna keep dumping links here.

Live From the Egyptian Revolution by Sharif Kouddous
There is a great sense of pride that this is a leaderless movement organized by the people. A genuine popular revolt. It was not organized by opposition movements, though they have now joined the protesters in Tahrir. The Muslim Brotherhood was out in full force today. At one point they began chanting "Allah Akbar" only to be drowned out by much louder chants of "Muslim, Christian, we are all Egyptian."


HELL YEAH.

6:45 pm Cairo time: Al Jazeera estimating 1,000,000 people in the square; Mohammed Elbaradei has joined protestors there.

DO NOT FUCK WITH THE WOMEN OF EGYPT. hiiii, they're my heroes.
