Forces Behind the Egyptian Revolution
by Michael Collins
(Washington, DC) Two critical forces behind the Egyptian Revolution are missing from the front
pages, or any pages, of the corporate media. They are the critical role of Egypt’s union movement
and the universal desire of all people to live in peace, freedom and dignity. The grievances of Egypt’s workers and their struggle to unionize effectively receive no attention. The connection between that struggle and the right to assemble to change conditions, the demonstrations, fails entered the public dialog. It is as though this were some aberration rather than an expression of a fundamental human aspiration suppressed in Egypt for decades.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
