Anti-government protests have reached a fever pitch in Egypt, as tens of thousands of people demonstrate against President Hosni Mubarak and his totalitarian regime.
Just hours ago, Care2′s Robin Marty reported on the Egyptian governments shocking decision to force national service providers to shut down all international connections to the Internet.
Since this internet censorship limits accurate representations of the violence and mass arrests taking place, television and radio coverage has become even more important.
The AssociatedPress recently posted this video clip on YouTube with the following caption: As darkness fell in Cairo, fires were seen burning in the city. Egypt’s military deployed on the streets to enforce a nighttime curfew on a day of rioting and chaos. (Jan. 28)
Even without a commentators voice, the scenes of unrest are truly troubling.
