The group Egyptians in the US, and specifically the Egyptians in Chicago chapter, have requested the support and participation of Occupy Chicago at their event commemorating the one year anniversary of the start of the Egyptian Revolution, on Saturday, January 21, 2012, from 12:30pm to 3:00pm.
January 25, 2012, will mark one year since the beginning of the Egyptian Revolution. Until now many of the revolution demands have not been met. The Egyptian people have suffered extreme brutality, and many fatalities in their struggle for freedom. Please go out and show your solidarity and support for the Egyptian Revolution. Remind everyone that the revolution, in Egypt and other places around the world, is still alive and we will not stop until the world is a better place.
12:30 pm - Gather at the "Horse statue", 500 S. Michigan Ave., the corner of Michigan and Congress.
1:00 pm - Leave the "Horse Statue", 500 S. Michigan Ave. and march north towards the Egyptian consulate.
1:30 pm - Arrive at the Egyptian consulate, 500 N. Michigan Ave.
1:35 am - 3:00 pm Rally, speakers, and theatrical protest at Egyptian consulate.
We will learn Egyptian revolution chants and songs that they are singing in Tahrir Square. Please come out and show solidarity for the catalyst of the Occupy Movement. Events are taking place all across the U.S. and the world. You can spread the word using the following twitter and facebook releases, and keep track of events on twitter with the hashtags #Jan21 and/or #Jan21Egypt.
