After last night’s grueling anticipation ended in crushing disappointment, the cries for change only roared louder into the night. This is the moment every Egyptian has yearned for with every fibre of their being.

Today is February 11, 2011.

81 years ago, a king called Farouk was born, and he was similarly forced to relinquish power after the people revolted.

On this day 32 years ago the Iranian revolution took place when the Shah’s forces were overwhelmed.

And 21 years ago today Nelson Mandela was freed by the apartheid regime in South Africa.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how many is a video?

Translation: “In the name of God the merciful, the compassionate, citizens, during these very difficult circumstances Egypt is going through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to step down from the office of President of the republic and has commissioned the high council of the armed forces to administer the affairs of the country.”
