Greetings from the Barnard-Columbia International Socialist Organization:
As I’m sure most of you know, 18 days of mass protest in Egypt have finally brought the 30-year rule of Hosni Mubarak to an end. This is a huge victory for the people of Egypt, people across North Africa and the Middle East, and a significant blow to US imperialism. Mubarak has been one of the United States and Israel’s staunchest allies, and the US government provides him with over one billion dollars of aid per year, most of it, military.
Socialist Worker has been providing daily and even hourly reports from Cairo – keep checking back all weekend!
We’re happy to be celebrating Mubarak’s downfall tomorrow on campus at 2pm and we hope you’ll join us!
