Massive protest against assault on Gaza

Another massive protest against the assault on Gaza was held today outside the Press syndicate in downtown Cairo. Thousands filled both sides of the street, tightly squeezed together and surrounded by riot police. Among the chants were "We are all Hamas," "Where is the Egyptian army," and "With our blood and souls we give ourselves to you Palestine." However, just like yesterday Muslim Brootherhood activists intervened whenever someone started chanting "down with Mubarak..."

The Socialist Alliance has called for a demonstration outside the Arab League Building in Tahrir Square on Wednesday 12.00 (the same day the Arab League is supposed to meet and discuss the situation in Gaza). And tomorrow (Tuesday) at 17.30 there is a meeting at the Hisham Mubarak Law Center to organize an emergency aid caravan to Gaza.
