EDSA in EGYPT
A dictator was toppled and freedom was given to a country that has long been held captive by someone whose last name is synonymous to POWER. Hosni Mubarak, Egypt's president for 30 years stepped down after 18 days of a seemingly familiar type of revolution.
The event hoarded the international news channels such as CNN and BBC and the internet. Almost all internet forums are discussing the Egypt revolution as well. Somehow I can't help but think that the Egypt revolution was taken out directly from the pages of the Edsa People Power revolution of the Philippines.
Now that the revolution is over, hopefully our friends from Egypt can piggyback on the success of what happened and continue to push its country towards the change that they have long desired.
