#Jan25: How you can help Egyptians & lift the info blockade

Piece of Mind posted this:

Friday, January 28th has been declared “The Day of Anger” in Egypt! After the noon-time prayers, Egyptians will empty the mosques and flood the streets for the 4th and hopefully, most impactful day of protests, yet. The government has cutoff access to the internet and there are reports that the military will be deployed in full force. A massacre in Egypt is about to take place if the world doesn’t interfere. Talk to the media. Talk to your representatives. Help get the voices of our Egyptian brothers and sisters heard across the globe!
