Ohio State Students Protest for the Egyptian People

Turn on the television to a news station and watch for a couple of hours. Undoubtedly, you will see footage or hear commentary of the protests in Egypt. It is a time of great crisis for Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, and the ease of communication made possible by today’s technology is not helping. Despite shutting down the internet within Egypt, Mubarak has been unable to isolate the events from the world nor has he been able to contain them. On Friday, January 28, 2011 students at Ohio State University’s main campus in Columbus, Ohio formed their own protest at the corner of 14th Ave. and High St. advocating the removal of Mubarak from office. With Egyptian flags and anti-Mubarak signs the students shouted for reform, justice, and liberty for the Egyptian people.
