When #Tahrir stood in solidarity with #occupyOakland #occupywallstreet

By @EgyptEagle and @SalehFekry

Not only americans watched how Oakland’s riot police dealed with #occupyOakland peacful sit-in a few days ago. But obviously a group of Egyptian activists decided to organize a march from Tahrir sq. last Friday to the US embassy in solidarity with the #occupyOakland.

In a country like Egypt were still the majority of people don’t know about the diversity inside the american community and that there’s a lot of people in America not happy with what their government is doing around the world. It was amazing to see a group of activists in their busy fight with SCAF (Egyptian Supreme Council of the Armed Forces) and their actions against the revolution demands, organizing such a beautiful solidarity march with the protesters in Oakland.

SalehFekry is an activist based in Cairo was at the protest and sent me an e-mail with the details@

“I found the event online on facebook, and I was in Tahrir sq. that time so I went to the meeting point that they mentioned” Saleh said. The US embassy in Cairo is only a couple of minutes away from Tahrir square “we started to write the signs and we were in front of the embassy after 5 minutes”. Chanting in English “We support #occupywallstreet” holding a mixed English and Arabic signs around 20 protesters showed their solidarity with the American activists in the US. “In my opinion numbers is not the big deal. It was organized in a very short time and we’ve a lot of issues Egypt is going through right now” Saleh said. But when a group of Egyptians decides to show soldarity with the American people in my opinion I think it means a lot”.

The Message was clear: “From the people to the people, The governments is not going to stay there forever. All the governments will change one day and the people voices will rule” Saleh finished his message.
