Damn, knew I forgot something. @3arabawy linked to it (http://twitter.com/3arabawy/status/33330629504401408). Not sure whether he took it himself, though.

Here's a related photo (http://twitter.com/NevineZaki/status/32962119850790912), definitely taken by @NevineZaki, if you want one with a definite source.

how hard it is to stay non-violent when you're being attacked

Hell yeah. :/ There's probably people who think it was somehow wrong for the protesters to throw rocks that one night when they were hiding behind barricades in Tahrir Sq., but ffs they were GETTING SHOT AT. I feel like in the grand scheme of things, getting shot at is a valid reason to throw some rocks. o_O

There's some discussion in ontd_p comments about how watching this could affect how we ourselves protest. I think... I hope it does. I've only been to a few protests, but the way we do it in my city, they're a couple of hours long in one or maaaaybe several specific places, and then everyone goes home. (Repeat once weekly as needed.) It's not a BAD way to protest--it gets people's attention quite well--but I do wonder what would happen if we had week(s)-long sit-ins. I mean holy crap. Do any of us get that intense about anything? Would 2 million of us get that intense?
