Al-Jazeera: Being There

by
Abby Zimet

With over a million people converging in Cairo, Al-Jazeera continues its singularly courageous and comprehensive coverage. We are grateful to and humbled by them, we applaud them, we thank them. Ongoing live stream here, and more remarkable video of protesters hanging Mubarak in effigy. Also, a vital reminder here by Jeremy Scahill on the irony/hypocrisy of the sudden U.S. support for Al-Jazeera after years of opposition to it. 

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
