Protests in Egypt

For four days in Egypt, the Egyptian people have been protesting to get the Egyptian president out of office because they are not happy with the government. Protesters have been using twitter, facebook and videos to get their messages to to fellow Egyptians and other parts of the world. As the government continues to ban uses of social media Egyptians are still finding ways to communicate and also being assigned curfews Egyptians are not following orders where protests have been violent with many being killed and injured. Time will only reveal how this issue will continue, but it shows how much of an impact that media has on many different parts of the world.


  1. Do you think the government should ever have the power to limit people's use of social media to have their voices heard?

  2. Isn't it wonderful that they are starting a revolution! I just hope that they come to a peaceful agreement! It really breaks my heart to see such a beautiful country in chaos. I cant wait to see the million person march tomorrow in Cairo. I pray for these people i hope they find peace and democracy

  3. It's great to see people standing up and taking action. It would be great it they could come to a peaceful agreement. A country in chaos is not necessarily a good thing, but these protests and riots give me (and probably many others) a much needed reassurance that people are bold enough to assert themselves and take a stand for change because no good can come from having a defeatist attitude.
