Egyption Protests

Im sure many of you know about the protests in Egypt and im sure many of you have opinions. As an American i can do nothing but support these people in the belief that they should have a voice in their government. In addition the shut down of the internet speaks for how fearful the government is that these people will be supported by the world. I recently learned of the efforts activits around the world to protect people's identities who are trying to speak out against the government

    Can someone fill me in on whats going on?

    The Egyptian people, mostly those that live in Cairo, Suez, and Alexandria, are protesting the government. Their goal is to have the current president, who has been in power for 30 years, to step down. The protests have gone on for six days now. The police has left the cities because they are corrupt and the protesters basically kicked them out. The military, which is highly respected by Egyptian citizens, has come into the cities to make sure the protesting goes peacefully. However, the military does have the power to force the president out of power, but has not chosen to do so yet.
