Purple Rose of Cairo

This is a space for free expression and to speak out against hypocrisy; It’s a space where we can speak of daily problems no matter how trivial; It’s a space for confronting our issues and discussing them honestly.

More of the Same

I just received the following sms. from a good friend of mine:

Plain clothes police dispersed Street is Ours group protesting in front of Metro Cinema and arrested Nadia Mabrouk, Walid Salah, an AUC student called Dina and a foreign reporter

More of the same. Tonight the blogs will be full of comments on this incident. We will all be dragged into a discussion of the police force and its hired thugs, the protesters and their right to speak out, the allegations that most bloggers are out to defame Egypt el mahrousa, etc. etc.
I'm trying hard to come up with something half intelligent to say but it aint easy. Everythig's been said and one thing has been proven... Blogs are the free alternative to established press.
