CAIRO: The sight of tens of thousands of Egyptians, taking to the streets, demanding their constitutional right to choose their leader was a turning point in the history of this nation.

No one imagined that the hoards of protesters who risked their lives on that historic day on January 25 would finally move their virtual revolution from cyber space to the street, but it happened and it continues.

The 10,000 Egyptians who were violently dispersed with water cannon, teargas and rubber bullets from Tahrir Square on midnight that day, the thousands who marched peacefully in Alexandria and Suez were the spark that triggered unprecedented demands to topple the regime and end the Mubarak dictatorship.
