First hand account from the demo in support of Lebanon




Courtney at Arab media has a first hand account on the demo at al Tahrir yesterday evening. You can find it here Thanks Courtney!

UPDATE: Hossam has more, including photos, here

UPDATE II: Daily Star(Egypt) has an article on the demo here.

A qoute:
¨The police ordered passers-by to steer clear of the protest, saying, “You’d better leave, for your own good, they will be beaten up.”

Amidst the swarming crowds were a few children dressed in army fatigue, carried on their parents’ shoulders and waving fake guns, in an eerie echo of the Palestinian protests.¨

UPDATE III: Virtual Madeena has more pictures, and a sound bite here
