I had a search and couldn't find this, sorry if it's a repost though.

This is allegedly a letter from the activists claiming the total lock down of media as of tomorrow.


Alicia Ali Marsden

To all the people of world

The people in Egypt are under governmental siege. Mubarak regime is banning Facebook, Twitter, and all other popular internet sites Now, the internet are completely blocked in Egypt. Tomorrow the government will block the 3 mobile phone network will be completely blocked.

And there is news that even the phone landlines will be cut tomorrow, to prevent any news agency from following what will happen.

Suez city is already under siege now. The government cut the water supply and electricity, people, including, children and elderly are suffering there now. The patients in hospitals cannot get urgent medical care. The injured protesters are lying in the streets and the riot police are preventing people from helping them. The families of the killed protesters cannot get the bodies of their sons to bury them. This picture is the same in north Saini (El-Sheikh zoyad city) and in western Egypt (Al-salom). The riot police is cracking down on protesters in Ismailia, Alexandria, Fayoum, Shbin Elkoum, and Cairo, the capital, in many neighborhoods across the city.

The government is preparing to crackdown on the protesters in all Egyptian cities. They are using tear gas bombs, rubber and plastic pullets, chemicals like dilutes mustard gas against protesters. Several protesters today have been killed when the armored vehicles of the riot police hit them. Officials in plain clothes carrying blades and knives used to intimidate protesters. Thugs deployed by the Egyptian Ministry of Interior are roaming the streets of Cairo, setting fire on car-wheels as means of black propaganda to demonize protesters and justify police beatings and state torture

All this has been taken place over the past three days during the peaceful demonstrations in Cairo and other cities. Now, with the suspicious silence of the local media and the lack of coverage from the international media, Mubarak and his gang are blocking all the channels that can tell the world about what is happening.

People who call for their freedom need your support and help. Will you give them a hand?

The activists are flooding the net (youtube and other sites) with thousands of pictures and videos showing the riot police firing on armless people. The police started to use ammunition against protesters. 15-year old girl has been injured and another 25 year old man has been shot in the mouth. While nothing of these has appeared in the media, there is more to happen tomorrow. Will you keep silent? Will you keep your mouth shut while seeing all these cruelty and inhumane actions?

We don’t ask for much, just broadcast what is happening

Not a good place to be right now.

Food staples starting to run out in Egypt

CNN) -- While discontent, resentment and nationalism continue to fuel demonstrations, one vital staple is in short supply: food.

Many families in Egypt are fast running out of staples such as bread, beans and rice and are often unable or unwilling to shop for groceries.

It's a shame, I guess this is why the looting is getting so serious.

My heart goes out in solidarity to these people. Makes a person feel so helpless. The government cutting landlines and all news reports will be tantamount to murder as medical and other assistance will also be cut off. Reports are that food is already in short supply are increasing. The violence will either increase or the revolution will be quelled. It's a wait and see for us all as to which way in goes.

Whatever the outcome I can see there being more and more catastrophic stories coming from this. Perhaps evein a civil genocide...

There is actually a video on the source link of a teenager being shot dead by Egyptian police.

They'll figure it all out.

Never throw a rock at a man with a gun.

And if you're the man with a gun and a rock thrower is lingering about, never go to sleep.

See how this works?

Thanks Rambo but I think it goes a little deeper than that.

Sadly GE is not live satellite feed. Its whatever Google was able to purchase from around the world. It looks like the Egyptian data came from within the last month via GeoEye, but the resolution appears to be such that anything below car/tree sized can't be seen.

What I'm worried about is how this will affect the region. If this progresses we could see a completely different Middle East by next month. Whats worse is that we don't know the long-term ramifications. Yes they are deposing dictators but what so much seems to happen in long-term dictatorships you have groups who all want power but aren't willing to give it up.

egypt running out of food

The news has hit the internet hard and might be a hoax for help by al qida.
It can be serious if you recall all the Bin Laden messages we got before 9/11/01 happened.
Who knew all these pre warnings ever meant a hill of beans.
