Seattle rallies in solidarity with Egypt

Just got back from the rally in solidarity with the protests in Egypt. A spirited crowd of 200 people turned out at Westlake plaza in Downtown Seattle, in the pouring rain with less than twenty-four hours notice.  The protest was mainly organized through email, Facebook, word of mouth and announcements at local Mosques.

This joins the worldwide protests in solidarity with the Egyptian people's struggle against the Mubarak regime. We'll know more details about the worldwide response soon, but I have heard of protests in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Portland, Madison, Champaign Urbana, and 2000 at the UN headquarters in New York City, to name a few. Very exciting!
