The post below is verbatim from the Mermaid’s Sea, a blog by a very talented Egyptian woman about whom I have posted before. The post is from yesterday. The so called Egyptian “government” is blocking all sorts of access to the outside world, just what we would expect from despotic governments. If you are in a position to get word out to the world about Egypt, please do your best.
Go to her blog, if you can, I was able to access it just now, and show your support. Her English is superb, so feel free to wish her and her people well.
Here is her post.
The dictatorial Egyptian government has forced the three mobile network companies in Egypt to block SMS sending and receiving. They also blocked the BBM services.
In Suez (one of the governates on the Suez Canal), they cut off the mobile phone networks and landlines as well!
Besides blocking Twitter, they started blocking FB! And they intend on cutting off the whole internet service all over Egypt tomorrow, 28th Jan!
They want us to be separated from the whole world so that they kill and slaughter us as they wish with no witness to their crimes!!!
Try to spread the news please. Help us make more pressure on them to leave us ask for OUR rights that have been taken from us by Mubarak the dictator who has been ruling us for THIRTY years!!!
I’ll try to update this post tomorrow as much as I can if I have still internet access!
