1 free, 12000 or so to go. I am happy to hear alaa is being freed from jail. His charges are still pending, but this is a huge victory for the Egyptian people and for free speech in general in the middle east. Now we need to see Amr El Beheyry and everyone else jailed by SCAF let free. What is happening in Tahrir is an atrocity. This is a step in the right direction for freedom of the people of Egypt.
