Cuban bloggers speculate that the Egypt protests may set an example for Cubans, issue advice to the Egyptian people and blog about similarities and differences between the two countries, while from Trinidad and Tobago, Globewriter calls social networking “the new human rights weapon”.

  • The Egyptian and Tunisian uprisings are blueprints for other People Movements that transcend authoritarian regimes and governments. It will be interesting to see, however, who will seize these movements and either plunge the people back into mass servitude under the guise of \doing the will of God, or honest-to-goodness \freedom fighters\ bent on shepherding the masses to a path of true democracy.

    There are also lessons for other African countries: These uprisings demonstrate that military regimes are anathema to freedom-loving people, and that the will of the people will always prevail in destroying them.
