From Tahrir to Wisconsin

While the whole of the ongoing protest in Madison has been often astounding, one of the most striking things I’ve seen through all of it was seeing a photo of a man holding this sign:

From Tahrir to Wisconsin protest sign

It says, “Egypt supports Wisconsin Workers.”

My jaw dropped when I saw this. A guy in Egypt. Egypt, where they’ve just thrown out a strongman after thirty years of police-state rule. And at least one man there is with us.

That is truly remarkable. Thank you, Muhammad Nusair, for standing with us from half way around the world.
