Egyptian Reformers Demonstration

The Righto-sphere has been jumping up and down citing Egypt as being the latest domino to fall (or least, maybe, tip, slightly, or not) thanks to President Mubaraks acceptance of reform of the Egyptian constitution.

Unfortunately actual reports from people in Egypt or even at the demonstrations have been sparse at best.

Arabist.net has filled the void somewhat. And has first-hand accounts (in the comments) of the most recent anti-Mubarak protest on Sunday, the 20th.

El Amrani also sheds light on the use of SMS (Cell phone instant messaging) to spread the word on the reformist protests:

Another example is this SMS that I just received:

DOWN WITH MUBARAK
DOWN WITH AMERICA
JOIN 20 MARCH DEMO SUNDAY, 1 O’CLOCK, IN TAHRIR

Hmmm.. probably not the PR Bush and Friends were really hoping for.
