01/31/2011–Protest

We were let of out class early today to photograph a demonstration. The plan was to show support for the Egyptian and Tunisian people, while also demanding that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak steps down. We weren’t sure how the protest would turn out. The protests in other areas have certainly exploded, but who knew how this would turn out? There were about 20 people who came out and demonstrated for just over an hour. It didn’t seem like much of a demonstration, and it was bitter cold.

Demonstrators marched to show solidarity with protestors in Egypt and to demand that Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak steps down.
