As this is written the final outcome of the Egyptian uprising remains unclear. Tens of thousands of brave protestors continue to demand Mubarak's resignation and real change in the country. The regime, backed by the US government, are playing for time, hoping to give up the minimum of power. What is clear is that whatever the outcome of these momentous events, nothing can be the same again – in Egypt or throughout the Middle East. The worldwide US 'war in terror' strategy has been totally undermined by the actions of the people of Egypt.
Egypt has been a cornerstone of the US "war on terror" and America's strategy for dominating the Middle East and denying justice to the Palestinians. Not for nothing is Egypt second only to Israel in the amount of US aid it receives, including $1.3 billion a year for the security forces alone--the same forces who have killed dozens of protesters in the last few days and injured thousands more. Under President Mubarak Egypt has been a US client state for decades. If his tyranny is overthrown the implications are momentous. Not just in the Middle East but even further afield, including the theatres of war in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.
One of the justifications for the invasion of Iraq was that it was the only way to get rid of a dictator. The Egyptian people this week, following the Tunisians earlier in the month, have shown they have their own ways. Not only have they risen in opposition to their corrupt rulers but they are also taking on the US and British governments who backed those rulers for so long.

Special Eviction Alert: This Monday@ 2pm
Former Housing Advice Centre, Occupied by Homeless people to be evicted by Violent Traveller Eviction Specialist Baliffs Constant & Co
There is a doubly bitter irony in a group of homeless people being evicted from a former homeless advice centre (closed because of the cuts) by High Court Baliffs Constant & Co, who have in turn, won the contract to make over hundred Irish Traveller and Roma families homeless at Dale Farm, Essex.
Housing and Legal advice services are being decimated by this government. Traveller and Gypsy communities are being attacked. Meanwhile, misery profiteers like Constant & Co are merely rubbing their hands and counting their profits.
Its up to us get in their way.
On Monday 7th Feburary at 2pm, the occupiers will be in Court at Redcliffe Street. Its highly likely (based on very recent experience) that an eviction attempt will follow immediately. So please be at: The Former Hub 13-17 Cumberland Street, St Pauls, Bristol, BS2 8NL for 2pm to give your solidarity and resistance.
why? Is what we’ve done in the past still useful today? And what
can be done now that couldn’t have been done last year?
