Egypt Preps for Second Day of Protests

Egyptian protesters have taken to Facebook and are pushing for new demonstrations Wednesday after tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Cairo on Tuesday. Those protests, during which four people died, sought to end President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year-rule of the country and were inspired, in part, by protesters in Tunisia. While the protests appear to have calmed on Wednesday, there are still a number of people demonstrating in the streets of Cairo, Alexandria, and Suez. Many call this the largest demonstration in Egypt since the 1970s.
