More rallies, brought to you by the same wonderful folks who've been hosting so many amazing and vibrant rallies in NYC these past two weeks. The people I've met at the rallies have been really excited about and welcoming of the support of non-Egyptian Americans. It goes without saying that the stakes in Egypt are huge, and those at the NYC rallies with relatives in Egypt have testified that the spectacle of global solidarity is bolstering morale in Egypt, especially since the internet was partially restored there. At the very least, non-Egyptian Americans owe it to themselves, after a lifetime of having their taxes appropriated to fund Mubarak, to assert our own rights to democratic control of our foreign policy and our budget--especially now, while the government's support for Mubarak seems to be at the tipping point.
