The Egyptians Want to Overthrow the Regime

The Egyptians are back on the streets today [January 25], calling for a continuation of their revolution, which started two years ago and saw the fall of former president Hosni Mubarak.

Violence marred today's second anniversary of the revolution, with at least eight people reported dead so far, and 370 injured.

Minutes ago, Adam Akary reported:

@adamakary: #BREAKING: At least 8 dead in #Suez, two of which are from the police. And more than 370 injured nationwide. #Egypt

And Nelly Ali writes [ar]:

احنا ثورتنا الأولى نجحت،شلنا نظام فاشل.وهننجح نشيل نظام أفشل وأغبى منه.. وهنفضل ننجح لحد منحس إن احنا بني أدمين في بلد ومش حيوانات ف حظيرة

@nellyali: Our first revolution succeeded, we removed a corrupt regime. And now we will succeed in removing a regime which is more unsuccessful and stupid than it. And we will continue to succeed until we feel we are human beings who live in a country and not animals in a shed.
