Festive Left Friday Blogging Too: Democracy Now’s live stream on Egypt

Watch live streaming video from democracynow at livestream.com

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Amy Goodman so happy. Or heard Sharif Abdel Kouddous, the producer, who’s from Egypt and is in Tahrir Square right now, talking revolution openly. This is an amazing day!

    Amy and Sharif have been stellar in all this. They show what journalism is all about.

    Hats off to the Egyptian people. This day is all yours–as is the future.

    Teach the world.

    The Swiss have frozen Mubarak’s assets. Millions of Egyptians want to put him on trial.

      Oh, that would be lovely! I’d like to see that, too. Failing that, the money should be returned to the Egyptian people–it was theirs to begin with, after all.

    i don’t know if it’s an amazing day. only time will tell. my gut says that although the revolution started off in a good place and was driven by people with honest motives, the powers that be are very well equipped and inclined to make all manner of back office deals to make sure that power stays out of the hands of the people. i want to see who ends up taking mubarek’s place. i want to see if this ends up being something like what happened in the states where a new warlord, completely willing to maintain and even to expand on the agendas of the old one, was elected by people bent on what they understood as “change”. i want to see if his abdication is anything like south africa where apartheid was “destroyed” but where the domination of white people and the ownership of most of that country’s wealth continues to be in the possession of the white majority. egypt’s revolution is accomplished? i think it’s a whole lot more complicated than that. time will tell. my celebration has to be deferred as the outcome is not (yet) clear.
