Solidarity Protest in Dublin for the Egyptian people

"We are all Egyptian"
Yesterday, on the fourth and most violent day of protests in Egypt against Mubarak's 30-year iron fist rule in which at least 20 people were killed and more than 1,000 injured, Ireland's Egyptian community along with people with live conscience from other Muslim countries, activists from the Irish group Act for Palestine and the Irish Anti-War Movement vented their outrage at the ongoing murderous repression of their countrymen outside the Egyptian Embassy in Clyde Road, Ballsbridge.
No room in the inn for democracy, concern or empathy for what was happening outside this establishment as the embassy staff sought refuge behind closed doors and window curtains filming the protest from a chink between the curtains for its duration. Cheered and dismayed in turn at the latest updates coming in via Twitter and Al Jazeera the mood of the protesters swung wildly but what was not in doubt was their rock solid solidarity with their fellow countrymen and their desire to see Mubarak join another tyrant in Saudi Arabia exile, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
