"Without the Eyes of the World, There Might be a Massacre."

That's what one young man told me before the first big protest that launched this grassroots revolution. It's more important than ever that the eyes of the world stay on Tahrir Square today, when a massive protest is planned at noon. All I can do is my minuscule part to keep the eyes of the world there, and to help interpret what they see, through radio interviews. Last night with Chapel Hill's own D.G. Martin, who is charming in person, but who was a tough interviewer: he focused on concerns re Israel, the US, minorities in Egypt. Will post the link to the interview when it's available online, but meanwhile here is a link to a snippet that was played on the news.
