What’s Happening in Egypt Explained: Egypt, protests, etc 101

Description:

This is a “quick” summary of the events that have been happening in Egypt from Jan 25 to Jan 28th. It is by no means a comprehensive account of events. But some of the bigger, key highlights.

Things that happened after I finished recording:

• Mubarak spoke (It’s a recorded speech). Max Fisher “just breathtakingly oblivious and dishonest.” Mubarak doesn’t sound like he’s leaving. He’s trying to align himself with the protesters. Mubarak says he has asked the government to resign—everyone but himself.

• Obama had a 30-minute phone call with Mubarak

• Obama says there “must” be reform. The bottom line seems to be that the US will continue to back Mubarak for the time being.

• The army is reportedly making protest gatherings in Cairo’s streets very difficult. It’s also 2:30 a.m. there, so things may be starting to wind down for the evening.
