Special Report from the Streets of Cairo

Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink: Women for Peace reports on the people power that may topple the Mubarak regime. This report was recorded on Feb 1 at noon PST, on a day where nearly 1 million people peacefully demonstrated, calling for an end to the 30-year dictatorship and US support for it. Benjamin gives an upbeat account of the fluid situation, and talks about resentment against the US and hope for change in the US posture by the Obama administration. We also talk about the ripple effect now evidenced in Jordan, and how the fall of Arab dictators will impact the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
