Thank you, people of Egypt—Shukran—for showing the humanity and bravery we all aspire to and that you most definitely embody.
Saturday afternoon, January 29, 2011, in cities across the United States, thousands rallied to show their solidarity with the uprising in Egypt and to also voice opposition to any military or diplomatic interference from the Obama administration. Students at universities are already initiating more solidarity actions on campuses this week, and all eyes remain fixed on the revolution in Egypt.
Below is a brief video of interviews I did with protesters outside the United Nations in NYC, where more than 2,000 people turned out. Special thanks to Noel Benford for filming and editing this piece.
