Egypt: Anti-Mubarak Demo in DC

Egyptian blogger Nora Younis, who is based in Washington DC, US, reports on a rally she helped organise in DC to protest against the constitutional amendments in Egypt. “We met with Mr. Wael Aboulmagd, Deputy chief of Mission..Mr. Wael said expressing our concerns and debating the amendments was very healthy. When I told him its a shame this can only happen in USA while fellows who were doing it in Egypt last night were kidnapped and beaten by security agents; he said ‘you don’t expect Egypt to change overnight. It will take more time for Security apparatus to change mentality’,” she wrote.
