rikyrah update: this is the statement of President Obama.
In case you haven’t yet heard, Hosni Mubarak is no longer the president of Egypt, having officially resigned a few minutes ago and handing over power to the military. The streets of Egypt flow with jubilation right now, and I cannot help but recall our own struggles for freedom and moments of victory in the United States.
As you rock the Al Jazeera English live stream, also crank the videos below of the civil rights struggle in America. Look at the pictures. Hear the voices. Feel the global connection across space and time of people seeking, fighting for and winning something closer to freedom.
Power to the people.
