On a day that organisers have called a 'make or break' moment for President Morsi, millions protest across the country calling for the ouster of the beleaguered leader



These are the biggest protests in Egypt since January 28 2011.




It seems the Egyptians people don't want to live in a theocracy of the Muslim Brotherhood, let's just hope Morsi will resign as fast as possible without violence or bloodshed.

If this is what it looks like when the good people in Egypt get together to tell a leader to find the exit door politely, I'd hate to see what they look like when they get all rude and pissed off about it.

What saddens me is we are a nation many times the size of Egypt and look at the numbers they can get off the couch and into the street. They aren't listening to anyone saying people power can't work, and so, it probably will. Even the greatest moments at the Washington Mall haven't mustered a respectable fraction of that. No one can say it wouldn't work here ....until it's been tried at least once.

I heard an interview with someone there. They stated that the revolution to oust Mubarak had been a success. This had led to the election of Morsi but the promises of change (sound familiar?) had not materialized so the people are back in the streets picking up where they left off.

Syria ring a bell? All thats missing in Egypt is a few boat loads of weapons. But I doubt that will happen here, The Us backed Military are still firmly in control (behind the scenes).

A few weeks ago I read that the military wouldn't intervene. Seems the military isn't too happy with Morsi either.

Peace

I don't know what country you're from, but countries like America haven't had their comfort stripped from them. It's only a matter of time before many people are personally affected and lifestyles are changed due to the damage being done to our country. Then, and only then will people stand up in the 10's of millions. People still have the luxury of new cell phones every year, new sneakers every other week, eating out 5+ meals a week, cable service, new video games every month, spending $50 a week on snacks and junk food.

I don't know much about Egypt, but I know these people aren't as privileged, and they've already removed a leader once before so they have the courage to stand up again.

What a grass roots groundswell. Is this what real yearning for freedom looks like?

Best vid I could find on short notice. This footage was taken last night of the mass of demonstrators. Just look at all those people. I hope they get what they are struggling for. I hope the police choose the peoples side this time.

I guess poison food, bailouts, invasion of privacy, toxic vaccines, taxes, rigged elections, crappy presidents, illegal wars, etc... just aren't enough yet.

Constantly I'm asking, WHEN is it gonna be enough? How many slaps to the face is it gonna take before society grows some balls and follows Egypt's example?

I don't know about anyone else but this gives me faith in the people again since I have lost so much of it over the last year.



Peace

Good on them, we in the west should all take a lesson from the Egyptians, and stand up against our increasingly authoritarian governments.

It has always been my opinion that "real" democracy in the Middle-East would the greatest threat to Israel and the U.S.
Democracy would just reflect popular opinion ... and the U.S, Israel are not very popular
