Listening to Al Jazeera news tonight, a reporter was talking about the state of Egypt at the moment and how it is affecting people directly.
Business are shut, therefore no shops are open. Food is going for triple the normal price if you can find it.
Cash machines are running out of money fast, the banks are of course shut, so thats not an option.
People have been setting up neighbourhod watch groups and using whatever weaponry that comes to hand to enforce thier defence against looters.
Food, water, meds, money stashed away and a way to defend yourself and family. When a country comes to a standstill like we are seeing in Egypt, you
need to have thought about the above things well before, otherwise you'll find a difficult situation getting much worse.
Panic will set in now, and the protests do not look like they will subside anytime soon. A few more days of this and who knows how people will start
This is something that any one of our countries could face some day, so you have enough warning.
Read the threads here, take baby steps and soon you will be a lot more prepared for such scenarios.
