1500 Chicago Protesters Rally in Solidarity with Uprising in Egypt

Solidarity!Amidst the growing popular uprising in Egypt, solidarity protests have swept the globe, including Chicago. From the newswire: "More than 1,500 people gathered in front of the Egyptian consulate on Chicago's gold coast Saturday afternoon to demand the ouster of the Mubarak dictatorship.

"People came not just from Chicago's Egyptian community, but from community groups and mosques across the region, and from a range of progressive anti-war projects, left-wing political formations and immigrant communities — Chileans, Palestinians, Irish, Polish, Greek and more. When asked how they heard about the protest, they said simply, 'The Internet.'"
