Mubarak Resigns, Cedes Power to the Military / New York Times

MUBARAK STEPS DOWN

 

Crowds in Tahrir Square in Cairo reacted to the announcement on Friday.

The people of Cairo, mostly the young, began their revolution as they gathered at Tahrir Square on Tuesday, January 25, 2011. They held steadfast to their demands for Hosni Mubarak’s resignation for eighteen days. They remained nonviolent throughout, even as some of them were murdered and many wounded by so called thugs set upon them by the Mubarak government and its supporters. Al Jazeera, streaming live, interviewed a young Egyptian physician as he celebrated in the Square today: “I feel alive again,” he said. “It was our will to hold steadfast until the regime folds. The people have toppled the regime . . . and restored dignity. . . . The army is in charge now. It has adopted a very noble stance . . . they have not fired a single bullet.”  ~ yours truly, df
