Democracy Now!’s Sharif Abdel Kouddous Live from Egypt: The Rebellion Grows Stronger

by

Massive protests in Egypt have entered their
seventh day as tens of thousands pack into Tahrir Square in Cairo.
Protesters are vowing to stay in the streets until President Hosni
Mubarak resigns. A general strike was called for today, and a "million
man march" is being organized for Tuesday. We speak with Democracy Now!
senior producer Sharif Abdel Kouddous, who is in Cairo. "This is a
popular uprising across all segments of society," Kouddous says. "People
are so fed up with Mubarak, it's hard to describe. They curse him. They
want him to step down. And they will not leave the streets of Cairo,
the streets of Egypt, until he does."
