Egypt protests: A million march in Tahrir Square?
• Activists call for mass demos in Tahrir Square against Scaf
• Government resignation fails to quell demands for change

Tuesday, 10.27am: Protesters are converging on Tahrir Square for a fourth day of demonstrations, AP reports.
Thousands of Egyptian protesters have been camping out on the square and clashing with police trying to force them to leave, evidence that an offer of resignation by the civilian Cabinet the day before has failed to quell the spreading unrest.

Egypt’s cabinet resigns in wake of deadly protests: the resignation comes after three days of violent clashes between demonstrators and security forces in Tahrir Square, but the action failed to satisfy protesters deeply frustrated with the new military rulers.

Earlier on Monday, Cairo police fought protesters demanding an end to army rule for a third day and morgue officials told Reuters the death toll had risen to 33, making it the worst spasm of violence since the uprising that toppled President Hosni Mubarak. More here…

Egypt Clashes Enter 3rd Day as Military Faces Pressure—Egypt‘s military rulers struggled Monday to contain an explosion of protests demanding their ouster, as demonstrators clashed for a third successive day with security forces around Tahrir Square and new clashes broke out across the country. The ripples from Egypt’s Arab Spring are far from gone

Believe the hype: Cairo is bigger than Berlin — The revolution, by the time it’s finished, won’t just change Egypt, not even just the region, but the whole world…

Egypt is the most populous Arab country, as well as the most central both geographically and culturally. It is the home of the Suez Canal. It is not the second largest recipient of US military aid in the world (after Israel) for no reason. Its dictatorship has been a cornerstone of US policy in the region since the 70s, and central to pushing American interests on a region that could and should - if free of colonial tinkering - emerge as one of the globe’s great centres of culture and trade, on a par with Europe or East Asia…

In 2011, the spirit of Tahrir Square has been echoed not just around the Middle East (including in Israel) but in Greece, Spain, Portugal, the UK, the US, Chile, Burkina Faso and more. And as the workers in Wisconsin receive letters of solidarity from their comrades in Mahalla, and the internet kicks into gear as both a tool for organising and challenge to the dominance of the media giants, these local uprisings are beginning to add up to a whole greater than the sum of its parts…
