      3. Great post. We need more of these "facts on the ground" accounts so that the west understands the nature of Mubarak and the regime.

        check out bamabacho.blogspot.com. I think we can benefit from linking up.

      4. Gameela wasn't arrested, but she and I were held by State Security for 3.5 hours in the street just outside Abdeen Square. They were pretty intent on keeping her from getting to the protest - two women apparently needed over 50 State Security babysitters!
