Egyptians and Koreans stand with one voice to denounce the Mubarak regime

By Roddy Quines, Seoul

On January 31, 2011, more than 200 Egyptians and Koreans protested in front of the Egyptian embassy in Seoul to show their solidarity with the protesters in Egypt. They burnt images of Mubarak and chanted out “Down, down Mubarak!” and “Free, free, Egypt!”. The chants were in English, Arabic and Korean.

Eqypt will fuel Thailand's fire

The riots in Egypt, and earlier in Tunisia, will only add fuel to the Red Shirt (and maybe together with the Yellow Shirts) fire giving them impetus for future protests and riots.


The slides from the Thai protest were awesome, and I'm also happy to see the smilingly defiant people of S Korea protesting as well! Could this become a world-wide movement for better conditions & more human rights (whatever that means)?
