Egypt and Tunisia - an inspiration

Listen to the remarkable double interview in this morning's The World Today
programme on the BBC World Service.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00d4rpr/The_World_Today_27_01_2011/

The interview, beginning at about 26'4" into the programme, is with two young
people: Ahmed in Cairo (whose phone is intermittently jammed by the
dictatorship) and Sanay in Tunis.

They express mutual support and solidarity. Their revolution is one.

Near the end of the interview, at about 30'48', the BBC guy asks Sanay: "Do you think history
is on your side?"

And without a milli-second hesitation, she delivers the right answer:

"We are making history; people are making history!"
