Even though the American media and U.S Department of Justice seem content to ignore the recent violent attacks on Occupy Oakland protesters, this grotesque example of police brutality hasn’t gone unnoticed by the rest of the world.
In Egypt, where the people are far too familiar with violent oppression, protesters took to the streets on Friday to show their solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement.
As demonstrators marched on Tahrir Square to protest the military’s continued control of their country, some brandished homemade signs with words of support for their counterparts in Oakland.
The photos below, taken by Egyptian journalist Mohammed Maree and published on Twitter, show the Egyptians’ messages of solidarity and requests that President Obama prevent more violence against protesters.
