Stand with #Egypt!

 Avaaz.org - The World in Action
I don't often do this, but in the case of the #Jan25 revolution, its worth it. Indeed, it feels compulsory. ...I've signed; I hope you will too:
 
Forwarded from the good people at Avaaz:
 


Brave Egyptian protesters will determine in the coming hours whether tyranny or democracy prevails in Egypt and across the region. They've appealed for international solidarity – let's send them a massive response, and hold our governments accountable to stand with them too:

Sign the petition!
Millions of brave Egyptians are right now facing a fateful choice. Thousands have been jailed, injured or killed in the last few days. But if they press on in peaceful protest, they could end decades of tyranny.

The protesters have appealed for international solidarity, but the dictatorship knows the power of unity at a time like this – they've desperately tried to cut Egyptians off from the world and each other by completely shutting down the internet and mobile networks.

Satellite and radio networks can still break through the regime blackout -- let's flood those airwaves with a massive cry of solidarity showing Egyptians that we stand with them, and that we'll hold our governments accountable to stand with them too. The situation is at a tipping point -- every hour counts -- click below to sign the solidarity message, and forward this email:

People power is sweeping the Middle East. In days, peaceful protesters brought down Tunisia's 30-year dictatorship. Now the protests are spreading to Egypt, Yemen, Jordan and beyond. This could be the Arab world's Berlin Wall moment. If tyranny falls in Egypt, a tidal wave of democracy could sweep the entire region.

Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak has tried to crush the rallies. But with incredible bravery and determination, the protesters keep coming.

There are moments when history is written not by the powerful, but by people. This is one of them. The actions of ordinary Egyptians in the coming hours will have a massive effect on their country, the region, and our world. Let's cheer them on with our own pledge to stand with them in their struggle:

Mubarak's family has left the country, but last night he ordered the military into the streets. He's ominously promised 0 tolerance for what he calls 'chaos'. Either way, history will be made in the next few days. Let's make this the moment that shows every dictator on our planet that they cannot stand long against the courage of people united.

With hope and admiration for the Egyptian people,
Ricken, Rewan, Ben, Graziela, Alice, Kien and the rest of the Avaaz team
