The American University in Cairo's Judges Protest, May 25

Students at the American University in Cairo (AUC) participate in a silent protest in their main campus. Protesters rallied in Cairo in support of independence calls by reformist judges and to mark the first anniversary of a referendum day tarnished by violence against opposition activists.(AFP/Cris Bouroncle)

Choosing the last day of classes to do a demo was a very stupid idea.

I know there were so many stupid ideas, but it is better than nothing. At least there is a beginning for this long long journey.. We can talk about it later..

They didn't get to "choose" now did they. Actually, the organizers did not expect to get anyone other than them to stand there.

That was understood and accepted before the whole thing. Anyone who joined would be a bonus.

Ba3dain, it gets really annoying when people pipe up with all these amazing criticisms when the problem is actually much bigger; you think the AUCians would have given a damn, were it not the last day of classes?

How long have you been an AUCian "member of islc"? How many times have you seen AUCians stand up for any "National Cause" or the like? I know I haven't.

Sorry, freedom, for hijacking your blog for this post.

Good Show!

PS It was the Greek Campus - the one with the library and the ugly 80s looking building dominating Mohammed Mahmoud Street.
