  1. This is fantastic, so inspiring. The world is listening and the ordinary people are on your side. I hope all those in the pictures are safe; I heard the police got heavy today. In solidarity and love.

  2. We have seen quite a bit of the demonstrations on Norwegian TV, from Madrid etc.I hope things will change to the better, for the (young) people who struggle to find work.

  3. hope it will end peacefully and their voices well be heard.

    I like the way you post processed these photos Rob. Very artistic!

    By the way, the word malling, I was hesitant to use that word when I was writing the post because I don't encounter the word even in the articles not until I saw an online dictionary that explains the meaning of the word malling. My colleagues are using that word when they want to spend their time shopping inside the mall.:)

  4. There has not been much about this in the U.S. press, unfortunately.

    What's really strange is we have people who call themselves the tea party…but they are financed and run by ultra right billionaires who work against the people's interests. The tea pot folks have been sold a bill of goods and don't even know it!

  7. It looks a lot different from the other Tahrir Square, sort of like summer camp or Woodstock. I hope their demonstrations will be peaceful and get some results.
    Thanks for the great coverage, since I still haven't seen any in our local papers.
